25 of the Most Expensive Private High Schools in the U. S.

The Most Expensive High School in Each State

When most of us were growing up, our parents worried about how they would pay for college. Some saved all of their money so they could make a better life for us through a college education, while others couldn’t offer to pay for school and we knew we had to work hard to be able to get that college degree and come out on the other side more successful.

These days, the average tuition for a public college in the United States is about $20,000 per year, equaling about $60,000 after four years. However, what if we told you that this $60,000 for public university education would not even be able to pay for one year at the most expensive high school in the United States?

The majority of high school students in the United States go to public high schools where they do not have to pay for their studies, aside from the occasional art supplies or field trips. Private schools can be ridiculously priced, and in this list, we have named the most expensive private high school in each state based on the tuition for the 2020-2021 school year. Yes, these numbers are from only one year of school, not the entire four years of high school.

South Carolina – Trident Academy $28,800

South Carolina - Trident Academy $28,800

Trident Academy is a school specifically for students ages K-12 who have been diagnosed with a learning disability. They help the students gain confidence in their ability to learn so they feel capable of succeeding beyond high school and in the world. They take an individualized approach to each student so they get the most out of their education.

It’s kind of sad that some of the most expensive high schools in each state are also the schools that could help a student in need out the most. These schools usually do offer scholarships, but they are still not as accessible as they should be.
