The list of best boarding high schools in Minnesota is based on a rigorous analysis of a number of factors relating to our school, including: reviews from current and past students and parents; SAT/ACT scores; the quality of colleges students consider and are accepted to; student-teacher ratio, boarding high school rating and more. Data from the U.S. Department of Education is also used to help rank the schools across the nation

Test Scores

Our average student’s ACT score is 29, far above the national average of 21.
