Confident in Their College Prep
Torres, Amanda
Independent School, v76 n1 Fall 2016
Every year, the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA conducts The Freshman Survey, a national longitudinal study that covers a wide range of student characteristics--from secondary school achievement and activities to educational and career plans to values, attitudes, beliefs, and self concept. To identify the academic and personal development of independent school students during their last year in high school, the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) asked HERI to create a special report based on the 2015 Freshman Survey results. Here Amanda Torres shares numeric results from the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) that reflect differences between college freshmen who attended independent schools and those who did not.
