2022 Top 10 New Jersey Private High Schools


Over the last month or so, our New Jersey affiliate: New Jersey Admissions Advisors, has been receiving many calls from parents who reside in New Jersey who are choosing to have their children transfer from public schools and apply to private high schools in New Jersey.


In New Jersey, the competition to gain admissions to top private high schools is heating up this year – 2022   As more and more parents discover the major challenges in suburban high schools:  (a) large class sizes, (b) not much flexibility when it comes to curriculum (c) they are under more bureaucratic red tape when it comes to regulations and rules, (d) larger school counselor-student ratio;  they are willing to forgo public school education (and pay tuition), which increases the application pool and competition to gain admissions into coveted slots.


Niche, a company that researches and compiles information on schools released its latest ranking of the best private schools in the US, specifically highlighting the best schools that prepare students for elite colleges.  By elite colleges, I am referring to colleges parents already know about: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, UPenn, Cornell, Dartmouth, Stanford, MIT, Duke, Johns Hopkins and BS/MD programs
