Berkeley Carroll Named One of the Best Independent Schools in New York

Berkeley Carroll once again ranked among the best private schools in New York by Niche.com, a third-party website that provides families with information about neighborhoods and schools.

BC is listed as the #15 Best Private K-12 School in New York. As originally reported in an article on Patch.com, this represents a jump of seven spots from last year.

The list, which can be sliced by city, metropolitan area, state or nationwide, most heavily relied on an analysis of students' test scores and the average ranking of universities students are most interested in attending or go on to attend. Niche.com also looked at the rate of college enrollment, cultural diversity, parent and student reviews, and the school's teacher-to-student ratio. Based on these criteria, Niche.com gave Berkeley Carroll an A+ grade overall.

Berkeley Carroll is in good company, appearing on the list alongside Manhattan and Brooklyn peer schools including the Dalton School, Riverdale Country School, Horace Mann and the Spence School.

This Niche.com ranking, which places emphasis on students' success after graduation, is just another endorsement of BC's approach to the college selection process. In 2017 every BC graduate is continuing on to college and 83 percent were accepted to one of their top choices. 86 percent were accepted into colleges that consistently admit fewer than half of applicants, and 40 percent to those that accept less than a quarter of students who apply.

We're proud of the hard work by our students, families, faculty and staff. Thank you for continuing to make Berkeley Carroll a place in which we're proud to learn and work. We're looking forward to another great year!
