After checking out the most expensive boarding schools in the world in 2017-2018, you’ll wish more than ever you could go back to your high school days!
I know I did! But perhaps the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend one of the most elite boarding schools in the world could be passed on to the next best thing—our kids. If only you can get them as excited about school as you will be after reading a little more about the best boarding schools in the world. Who knows! After checking out what they all have to offer, maybe they will be!
And spoiler alert!—nearly all of the most expensive boarding schools in the world in 2017-2018 are located in the same country. You’re gonna start putting two and two together at some point, so I may as well bring that up now so that I can prepare you for the Swiss boarding school costs, as they are, well—you guessed it—some of the most expensive schools in the world in 2017-2018. That being said, I WON’T spoil the most expensive school in the UK for you, nor will I give away the most expensive high school in the world as all of these boarding schools also offer regular day students. I’m sure you’ll be glad to hear that many offer financial aid, as well, because even if you don’t have the kind of money it takes to send your child(ren) to any number of these schools—let’s face it—you’re still going to want to get them in even if you have to sell your soul to make it happen.
I’m not going to talk up these schools much longer—I promise. Before I get on with the show, I first have to share with you how I went about finding the most expensive boarding schools in the world. Forbes was a good start, although only focused on European schools. Remember, I am looking for the most expensive schools in the WORLD! So, I meshed together a number of different lists of the most expensive boarding schools in the world, including the American and European edition Business Insider’s most prestigious schools, and I gotta tell ya—I would find it very difficult to believe that schools could get any more expensive than these!
And although a lot of them offer financial aid for those who qualify, it’s never a guarantee. I may never be fortunate enough to send any of my kids to the most expensive boarding schools in the world in 2017-2018, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t send them to one of the 12 Best Boarding Schools in the World in 2017.
So, let’s start with our list, shall we?
15. St. Albans School
Where are we going to start the bidding at with the most expensive boarding schools in the world in 2017-2018? Shall we say, $50,000? Guess again! While there is a completely different school with the same name of this one located in Switzerland, it’s mere $24,850 a year is nothing compared to the $62,228 it costs to attend St. Albans School in Washington DC, making it the most expensive boarding school in the US. But the doors aren’t open to everyone! This school boards boys between grades 4-12 and is known for its balance between academic, moral and spiritual education. What’s also neat about St. Albans is that while it is an “all boys” school, they team up with the “all girls” school across the street to give the students coeducational opportunities in both academic and extracurricular activities.
