Question: Which Is the Most Expensive Private School?
Why one school's tuition is $35,000 per year and another with much the same program and facilities costs $40,000 is always an interesting question. The answer lies in variables such as the size of the school's endowment, how well it is managed, the kind of instructional program offered and many other factors. Are you getting good value? Only you can determine the answer to that question based on your needs and expectations.
Answer: The Forman School
in Litchfield, CT. Forman's tuition for boarders is $49,900 for academic year 2007-2008. For day students the tariff is $41,000.
Bear in mind that Forman offers a highly-respected program for students with learning differences. This requires one on one teaching in many cases, as well as the skills and experience of highly qualified and experienced faculty and staff. In other words it costs more to educate students this way.
The most expensive school in the world? La Rosey in Switzerland. Tuition runs in excess of $85,000 a year. Then you have the extras, such as laundry, skiing, and so on. Your classmates will be an international moneyed set whose parents have homes and business interests round the globe.
