Boarding and High School Admissions

High School and Boarding School Admissions

Phoenix middle school students who have goals of getting into the best colleges in the nation may have a competitive edge if they attend highly selective private schools in Arizona or boarding schools in other states. Attending a competitive private high school makes students stand out, gives them unique opportunities, can offer more attention, and may up students’ chances of admission to the college of their dreams. It is difficult to gain admission into these private high schools, and many require that you submit detailed applications. If you have the help of the expert admissions and educational counselors at Going Ivy, you may improve your chances of getting accepted into a top private school in Phoenix or one of the elite private boarding schools that are known to send large percentages of their students to the Ivy League colleges.

Going Ivy’s Help with Getting into the Most Selective High Schools in the U.S.

If you have your sights set on getting admitted into one of the most selective boarding schools in the nation, Going Ivy is also able to help you with that goal. As a premier academic tutoring, counseling and admissions company, we have former admissions officers, expert counselors and world-class tutors on our team. We understand that some of the most selective boarding schools in the country are nearly as difficult to get into as are the colleges of the Ivy League.

Phillips Exeter reported that it accepted 17.8 percent of the students who applied for admission in 2016 and Choate’s acceptance rate is 18 percent. These low admissions rates demonstrate that getting into a highly selective private school may be almost as difficult as getting into an Ivy League school or another selective college. While it may be hard to get into one of these schools, gaining admission may help you with your college applications in a few short years.

Some of these schools are known as ‘feeder’ schools because of the high percentages of graduates that they send to such schools as Princeton, Cornell, Harvard, Yale and others. It is clear that attending a highly selective private boarding school can give applicants an edge when they apply to Ivy League schools and other elite colleges in the U.S. Attending an elite private high school can truly prepare you for college life and classes, whereas weaker high schools might not have the resources to prepare all students for the next step in education. Applicants who have graduated from rigorous, selective private high schools are given additional consideration by admissions officers because the curricula at these schools are rigorous.
