The 10 Most Expensive Boarding Schools In the World

Page 1 of 8

Would you like to know which are the most expensive boarding schools in the world at the moment?  The remarkable institutions in our list have received every celebrity you can imagine, but not celebrity in the Hollywood sense of the word; intellectual celebrities, the royals, the wealthiest people on earth. Moreover, these private schools (in the U.K., oddly known as public schools) offer the most rounded education you can imagine. For the mind is not the only thing that counts, the body is also an essential part of education: “Mens sana in corpore sano”.

If you’ve already read our list of The 6 Best Boarding Schools in the World (and if you haven’t yet then you should check it out right now!), you already know what these state-of-the-art facilities include. If not, then I should tell you that skiing slopes, tennis courts and gymnasiums are the essentials of high-end boarding schools. Almost needless to say, all of the schools in our countdown happen to be in Europe; of course this doesn’t mean that American schools are less prestigious, only not as expensive.

Keep in mind that the costs we used to rank the boarding schools don’t include books, clothing or other optional extra-curricular courses that parents may also pay for. But, I know you’re looking forward to the new school year, whether you’re a student or a parent. So have a look at our countdown of the most expensive boarding schools in the world.
