Good morning.
Can you give me a little more info? Where are you located? Are you looking for a boarding school or a day school? Are you looking to stay where you are located. How old is your child? Let me know. Thanks.

Please check into Deerfield Academy in Western Massachusetts.
A fine reputation and you can see on their fast facts button the most attended colleges from graduates.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
This is not that helpful. How does Deerfield rank on a national scale in terms of academics, ivy league college acceptance rates, endowments, etc.
Expert:  TherapistJen replied 5 years ago.
I am sorry that you have not found my information to be that helpful. I offered Deerfield as an option for you to explore more in depth by visiting their site and calling to get answers to those detailed questions you have. It is one of the finest academies around. I do not have the statistics you are looking for. Please contact them and explore them further. Any others I list such as St. Andrews in Florida I will request that you do the same.
I hope this has been helpful but contacting the schools directly is the best way.
Good luck in your search.
Would you like me to opt and out pass you on to another professional?
