Statistics of Private High Schools and Academies, 1921-22. Bulletin, 1923, No. 60
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
For the 1921-22 school year 1,963 private high schools and academies sent to the bureau schedules complete enough to include in this bulletin. The number of schools reporting decreased about 6 per cent since 1920. This decrease can not be charged to any particular type of control. There is a substantial increase in the number of graduates from these schools. There is a slight increase in the total enrollment over 1920. The average number of students per school has increased from 56 in 1900 to 96 in 1922. There has been no increase in the enrollment for the first three years of secondary work. There is an increase in fourth-year enrollment, and a still greater decrease in students taking work above the fourth year, where the increase over 1920 is 61 per cent. This latter increase should lend encouragement to the advocates of the junior college. The increase appeals to be in the enrollment of white girls, and particularly in girls' schools. A list of private high schools and academies having an enrollment of 100 or more students is provided in this report. The list serves as a directory of the larger schools, and relates some of the important facts about each institution. (Contains 19 tables.)
