Private School Powerhouses DROP THE BAG

Post by RedPillWonderland »



Considering: 1) the obsession of some of our members with the imbalance of power in HS football/sports toward private schools; 2) the frequent reference to actual high schools like Mater Dei and St. John Bosco as “IMG West” as if they were sports academies like the real IMG - with $84K annual boarding fees on top of $64K annual tuition; and 3) the many discussions had by longtime and brand new members alike over the years regarding the money involved in private HS sports - I imagine the numbers above won’t go overlooked.

By the way, what a troll job by Servite charging $85 less in tuition than Mater Dei. Truly a rivalry in every way possible LOL

Oh, and for those wondering, the total current value of an invite to attend IMG for your senior year to play for the defending “national champions”?? Per Maxpreps that number is $151,800 for a single year.

Mater Dei also named 6th most “influential” private high school in the United States by Academic Influence.



Harvard Westlake is #3 behind only super preppy, super elite New England-based Ivy League prep schools Phillips Exeter and Phillips Andover. De La Salle #5, Sherman Oaks Notre Dame #10.

Servite #32, Bosco #33 and Santa Margarita #38.

Are you sincerely suggesting that Servite decided what to charge for tuition based on what Mater Dei charges?

At #39, I'm surprised Los Angeles Loyola is not higher on the list.

agreed about Loyola HS. Also think this list may look different when the alumni bases of schools like St Margarets, Sage Hill and JSerra (and similar Catholic HS's around the country founded since the mid-00's) mature.

Surprised that many schools listed are Catholic institutions (although if they are Jesuit schools the question of commitment to Catholicism is an open one :) ). The constant is that most (but not all) are where elites send their kids (in a lot of the Catholic schools mentioned a big chunk of the students aren't even Catholic, particularly in western states). Major example-John McCain's kids all went to Brophy or Xavier.

Sage Hill isn’t a Catholic school. Knowing people in the administration there, it’s almost anti-parochial.

Actually many schools at the top of the list I mentioned have no parochial or religious affiliation and are independent college prep schools, like the top 3: Phillips Exeter, Phillips Andover, and Harvard Westlake, along with other top schools like the Dalton School in New York, and Crossroads in Santa Monica.

Agreed on Sage Hill. Phrased that sentence wrong.

Harvard/Westlake was originally a military school. Got rid of that years ago.
