1. Shortridge Academy – $85,000 Yearly Tuition
Shortridge Academy calls itself a therapeutic school. The school says it focuses on mental and behavioral well-being on top of its academic programs as students try to navigate the strange time that is adolescence. In fact, each student has his or her own counselor to talk about their concerns, and counselors work with parents to help build an individualized therapeutic plan.
Beyond this, students can take part in activities like jiu jitsu, weight training, or nature hiking, along with multiple visual arts and music programs. And once these students leave Shortridge, many of them move on to attend one of their first-choice colleges.
