The medium of instruction in private schools is English. Private schools are usually affiliated to the national CBSE board or to the Tamil Nadu Board of Secondary Education. Schools funded by State Government, often called Corporation Schools, are affiliated to the Tamil Nadu Board of Secondary Education. These schools offer both English-medium and Tamil-medium education, English being preferred by a majority. A few schools are affiliated to the ICSE board and the Montessori system. A few schools also offer the International Baccalaureate and the American systems.

Schooling for a student begins at the age of three. After two years of kindergarten (LKG for Lower Kindergarten and UKG for Upper Kindergarten) and twelve years of schooling, students take up non professional or professional university courses. Often, toddlers are admitted to Pre-KG or play schools.

International schools in Chennai include the American Internatonal School Chennai which offers both the American system and the IB system; as well as the British International school.
