Catholic Schools

Via the Tablet newsfeed:

US Catholic schools ‘best of the best’

Students who attend Catholic high schools in the US are more likely to graduate and attend four-year university courses than students at any other schools. A report from the National Catholic Education Association found 99.1 percent of students at Catholic secondary schools – all of which are fee-paying – graduate, compared to 97.9 per cent of students at other faith schools and 95.7 per cent of students at non-sectarian private schools. The graduation rate at public schools is 73.2 per cent. Additionally, 84.7 per cent of school-leavers from Catholic schools attend a four-year university course, a greater proportion than from any other type of school.
