This publication contains statistics of private high schools and academies reporting to the bureau for the school year ending June, 1926. Reports were received from 2,350 schools, an increase of 226 over the number reporting in 1924. This increase is due to a larger number of complete reports rather than to an increase in the number of institutions. Aside from the larger number of reports, there are few significant changes over 1924. The increase, in number of students reported amounts to 14.6 per cent, which increase is about equally divided as to sex. The increase in number of teachers is 15.5 per cent, which is 11.9 per cent for men and 16.7 per cent for women instructors. Fourth-year students increased 21.3 per cent, which is equally divided as to sex. The number of graduates increased 18.9 per cent which is 11.8 per cent for boys and 20.4 per cent for girls. Of the boys in the fourth year in 1926, 85.8 per cent were graduated, and of the girls, 92.3 per cent were graduated. In 1924 reports were received from 111 schools for the Negro race, which enrolled 10,891 students. In 1926 reports were received from 103 such schools, with an enrollment of 10,261.
