As a housing crunch continues to grip neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn, Westchester County is becoming an attractive area to raise families. Additionally, because of large classroom sizes, more Westchester County parents are looking at private high school as an option to public high schools.  If you are looking for top schools based on college admissions acceptance, Niche released its 2018 Best Private High Schools ranking: Westchester County private high schools.
