I was reading a book on elite boarding schools, and it was mentioned as one of the elite 16.

So what were the top 10 according to your book?

Andover, Exeter,St. Paul's Deerfield, Choate, Hotchkiss Taft, Milton, Brooks, Lawrenceville
I think they are in that order, about 80 positive, but no one is perfect.

Your are mentioning The Ten School Alliance. What definition you put to "elite" then becomes the issue. It is hard to tell from the names who is asking this question. Andover05 seems to have made a determination. Episcopal is small. What style of education are you seeking?

The book I checked out from the library like a year ago is entitled "Preparing for Power: America's Elite Boarding Schools." I don't exactly remember what's in the top ten, but most of the prestige 7 schools are definitely on it.

Brickyard that is true, but the fact that you overlooked is that the reason there is a ten school alliance, is because these are the schools that most people want to get into, or produce the most applications, not to mention the prestige of all of the school in the ten school alliance. As I have stated before, I am not entirely sure if all schools are on there that I have mentioned, but I do know that I have listed them according to their reputation, more or less, but beware, when you talk about the ten school alliance, you are talking about the top 2% of the 'elite' borading schools in New England. Im pretty sure no one wants to argue the superiority of the New England boarding schools verses the midwest, or west coast.
