Peterson’s Private Secondary Schools 2014-15, 2015-16, and 2016-17 are valuable resources to help parents and students evaluate and choose from more than 1,100 schools in the United States, Canada, and throughout the world. Featured institutions include independent day schools, special-needs schools, and boarding schools-including junior boarding schools for middle school students. Profiles offer detailed information on areas of specialization, location/setting, affiliation, accreditation, tuition and aid availability, student body, faculty, academic programs, athletics, computers and campus technology, and admission information. Dozens of in-depth descriptions and displays offer photos of students and school campuses, as well as essential information to help parents find the right private secondary school for their child. Extra Summer Programs section offers additional details on fascinating summer opportunities at private secondary schools.
