Cincinnati.com: These Greater Cincinnati high schools send the most graduates to top Ivy League Universities (Country Day #1 in Cincinnati)

In an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer, Country Day was ranked the best school in Cincinnati for sending students to the top Ivy League schools of Harvard University, Princeton University and MIT*. The rankings came from the PolarisList (The Best High School in Ohio) based on enrollment at those three universities because of selectivity and accessibility to lower income students. The list was compiled from 2015-2018.

From the newspaper article - "Our national high school rankings are based on a single objective measure: the number of students a high school sends to top colleges," PolarisList said.The list of local high schools is full of familiar names on both sides of the river.

"If a high school is able to send students to one of these three schools, it means that the school has created an environment to support high achieving students, whether it's in academics or extracurriculars," PolarisList said.


In addition to the #1 Ranking in Cincinnati, Country Day also ranked 8th in the state (Based on percentage of graduates in each class, CCDS ranks near the top in the state). Click the PolarisList above for a complete view of the rankings.
