School is certainly not cheap and I suppose if you have the means, you can send your child to a very expensive high school. Massachusetts is number one in education and with that comes a lot of not so cheap schools. For the sake of this post we will focus on high school.

MA High School Named 'Most Expensive' In America

I'm a member of the class of 1998. I entered Bishop Fenwick High School in Peabody, MA in the fall of 1994 with a yearly tuition of $4000. The following year, my parents yanked me out of there because the tuition was going to $5000.  Bishop Fenwick in 2024 is $19,250 just for reference. This seems like nothing when it comes to the yearly cost of some of these schools.

Milton Academy - yearly tuition $65,980 (day) - $75,980 (boarding)


Known for its commitment to fostering academic excellence and holistic development, the Milton School offers a comprehensive range of programs and educational opportunities and is dedicated to expanding students’ intellectual curiosity, critical thinking and social engagement.
