For the school year ending June 30, 1924, a total of 2,124 private high schools and academies sent statistical reports to the Bureau of Education. This represents an increase of 161 schools over the number of 1922. In addition to average school size increases, the number of graduates also grew, although the number of teachers in 1924 over that of 1922 has not kept pace with the increase in the number of students so that the number of students per teacher is now 13.8. Three tables provide a review of statistics, 1890 to 1924; a review of statistics for five-year periods, 1895-1924, as to denominational control; and the distribution of students, 1907-1924. Additional tables present data gathered in the biennial survey, 1923-24: the classification of private high schools and academies, instructors, and secondary students according to religious influence or control; data on schools, instructors, students, military drill, and property; statistics on graduates, and graduates continuing their education; a classification of students enrolled by years; miscellaneous comparisons, and a classification according to sex of students admitted; four-year private high schools and academies--schools, instructors, students, and graduates; distribution, by years of students, and graduates continuing their education; statistics of private high schools and academies for the Negro race; enrollment of secondary students by courses of study; institutions which enrolled 100 or more secondary pupils, and those institutions for Negroes which enrolled 100 or more secondary students. (Contains 15 tables and 3 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
