Yesterday, I gave you information on how the St. Louis area’s private high schools compare on the ACT and SAT test scores. As a follow up, take a look below to see the hardest private schools to get accepted into in St. Louis based on St. Louis Magazine’s survey.

The chart below lists the top 16 most competitive schools based on the percentage of applicants that were accepted for the 2007-2008 school year. (NOTE: Some of the surveyed schools choose to not disclose their acceptance rate, and as a result are not included in the rankings.)

School % Accepted Grades
City Academy 36% 4 yrs – 6
Loyola Academy 38% 6-8
John Burroughs 47% 7-12
The College School 48% 3 yrs – 8
Mary Institute & Country Day (MICDS) 52% JK-12
The St. Michael School 67% 3 yrs – 6
St. Louis Christian Academy 70% PK – 12
New City School 70% 3 yrs – 6
Crossroads 70% 7-12
Villa Di Maria Montessori 80% 3 yrs – 6
Chaminade 80% 6-12
Visitation Academy 82% 2 yrs – 12
St. Jospeh’s Academy 83% 9-12
Ursaline Academy 84% 9-12
Nerinx Hall High School 85% 9-12
Lutheran High School North 85% 9-12

And since I am writing about St. Louis, I can’t close a series on schools without asking the classic question – Which high school did you go to?”

Leave me a comment below…I REALLY would like to know which schools you went to, and what you thought of them.
