Prepping For Life
About one percent of United States students attend prep school, with nine percent going to parochial schools and the other eighty eight percent going to public schools. So why consider prep school? Is it out of the average person's reach?
Prep schools do have a rigorous and selective admission procedure. They are also costly even with the availability of grants and financing. Typical costs are similar to attending an ivy league college.
These schools are primarily to ready the student for college admission, but they also ready the student for life. With very low student to teacher ratios, individual attention to each student is possible. A typical class has eight to twelve students. Faculty members generally have advanced degrees and are more easily retained due to tenure.
Students are encouraged and sometimes required to participate in athletics. There are also many activities to appeal to all interests. Musical, dramatic, and various clubs round out the activities.
Prep schools are not subject to government regulation but must be accredited by one of six accreditation boards. Because they are privately funded by tuition and large endowments, they often have superior equipment to public schools.
A wide variety of advanced course are offered to the students and most are accepted to the college of their choice. These students are well educated and well rounded, prepared for college and life beyond.
The top tier prep schools are extremely selective. The admission process is long and difficult and they have an admission rate of about thirty percent. This is how most people think of prep schools, snooty, selective and for the very wealthy. Check out a few different ones before you decide . You may just find one that is the perfect fit.
