From Business Insider by Melissa Stanger and Peter Jacobs:
With the start of the new school year comes an inevitable rise in tuition and we're not just talking about the price of college.

This year, more than thirty private high schools in the U.S. are charging more than $40,000 in tuition, with the most expensive reaching almost $45,000 more expensive than many colleges.

But with premium costs come premium perks like iPads, state-of-the-art athletic and learning facilities, and clubs for every interest imaginable.

We calculated the most expensive private schools based on day student tuition plus mandatory fees (including one-time fees, where listed). Boarding-only schools and schools for students with special needs were not included.
