What is the most expensive prep school in the world?
Parents may choose to send their
child to a prep school for many reasons. Some think that these types of schools
have a far better curriculum than public schools offer. Prep schools also often
have better equipment, and more of that equipment, available to students, giving
them another edge over students in public schools. The families that send
children to prep schools are often wealthy and hold high-power positions in
their career and networking with these families on a daily basis can be a huge
advantage. Schooling in these former settings usually also expects much more
from the students and is done in a much stricter atmosphere.
But this type of education does not come cheap in
any prep school, especially if you’re looking to send your child to the
Middlesex School in Concord, Massachusetts. This is in fact, the most expensive
prep school. Frederick Winsor founded the school in 1901 and introduced one of
the first scholarships for secondary students.
The school has changed somewhat over the years to
accommodate the modern day. For instance, the school started as being an all-boy
school but is now open to both males and females. Some traditions however, never
die. Each student in the graduation class still partakes in the carving of a
plaque, which is a long-standing tradition from when the school was first
opened. Keeping the same headmaster as long as possible is another tradition.
Only five have ever held the coveted position in all the years the school has
Tuition varies on whether or not the student is
going to board at the school or not. For boarders, tuition is $40,780 and for
those who are only on the grounds during the day, tuition is $32,625. Yes it’s
expensive but some students get some reprieve from the price. Of the 346 total
students the school holds, 108 of them receive an average yearly grant of
$30,740. Still pretty pricey.
