There are many different types of private schools all with different tuitions. I live in the Northeast and our children attend a Friends School. Cost per student per year is $21,500.
I've seen prices range from 5k-30k for kindergarten.
I think it depends on the area. My kids attend a private christian school and it costs us about $7000 a year for the two of them. They are in 1st and 4th grade. Our school also has a reduction in price for each additional kid after 1 child is enrolled.
In our area it is about $5,000 a year per child, plus drop off charges, uniforms, registration and books. It's approximately $7,000-10,000 (for everything) per year, per child.
My children attend a private Catholic school. It's $7,100/year for practicing Catholics in the parish.
The rate goes up if you are not from the parish, and it goes up again if you are a non-Catholic.
I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.
For Catholic School in our area I pay $3050 for tuition, $50 for registration, $400 for obligation, $210 for books and communal supplies, $55 for individual supplies and $25 for cleaning supplies for each child per year. It varies greatly by Diocese though.
Vary widely around here as well. There is one around here that is $3,500 to $5,500 per year. Then we have one that costs over $60,000.
