Attending a top private high school provides a solid academic foundation, helps students gain entrance into first-rate colleges, and prepares them for the challenges of the real world.
Niche, a company that researches and compiles information on schools, released its newest rankings of the best private high schools in the country.
The ranking looked at nearly 3,500 private high schools across the US, rating a number of factors including SAT and ACT scores, graduation rate, school culture and diversity, and college enrollment. You can read the full breakdown of the methodology here.
