View comparisons of boarding schools in various categories. First, some important notes:
The data below are intended to serve only as informal reference points for comparing schools on specific criteria and not as definitive benchmarks as to which school is better than another for you.
There are a number of even more important criteria which cannot be presented through ordered lists - such as schools' educational approach and quality of life. The data below should serve as only some of the many variables you should consider when evaluating schools.
Our site does not offer an overall ranking of schools, because overall rankings can imply that one school is objectively better than another, which is never the case. Schools differ in their educational approaches and campus environments, and only you can be the judge of which school is the best school for you and what you need.
