NYC Private School Tuition Breaks the $40,000 Barrier


Riverdale Country Day School will charge $40,450 for the upcoming school year, the highest in the city after a decade in which tuition has climbed 79 percent overall among private schools. By 2012, average tuition citywide is expected to be somewhere around $39,700. One parent and education consultant told The Wall Street Journal, “Nobody’s complaining about the price. Nobody.” Which is perhaps the only thing New York City private school parents won’t complain about, given the opportunity. [WSJ]
