Even in the elite world of private high schools, not all academies are created equal. Some shine a notch above the rest.

The ranking looked at nearly 3,500 private high schools across the US, rating a number of factors including SAT and ACT scores, graduation rate, school culture and diversity, and college enrollment. You can read the full breakdown of the methodology here.

Below Business Insider has included each school's location, annual tuition, and, because each school scored incredibly high on Niche's metrics, the category where the private school scored lowest.
