If you've ever attended a private college, you know how costly it can get. The same goes for private high schools too. In fact, private secondary education institution tuition has skyrocketed in recent years.

Education A Lot compiled its list of the priciest high schools in each state. You might not be surprised that New York, California, and Connecticut top the list, but what may surprise you is the spendiest school in Minnesota isn't too far behind.

According to Education A Lot, Shattuck-St. Mary's is the most expensive high school in the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes, at a staggering $55,000 per year.

Here's a look at what Education A Lot had to say about Shattuck-St. Mary's School:

This school is an Episcopal boarding school that cost about as much for one year of tuition as an entire college education! They strive for excellence and have their students use the word “imagine” often in their vocabulary to encourage out-of-the-box thinking and innovation.

They focus on science, engineering, music, and specialty sports such as figure skating. For that price, it better be providing the best of the best in excellence!
