  • Among "All Schools", view the boarding schools with the highest percentage of students of color (2020-21).
  • For several key reasons (listed below), these comparisons are intended only as informal reference points for evaluating the diversity at a school.
  • Defining "students of color" is not always a clear-cut issue, and schools sometimes use slightly differing definitions when reporting data.
  • Boarding school populations can reflect regional populations (naturally, boarding students would still rather be closer than farther to their families) - it will be natural for schools in less diverse regions to have a less diverse student body than schools in other areas, and this should not reflect poorly on the school in any way.
