Private Schools in the US

Revenue for the Private Schools industry is expected to increase, as the economy continues to recover. During the five years to 2016, enrollment decreased, which was a trend attributable to rising costs and competition from charter schools. However, in the next five years, household income is anticipated to increase, making it easier for families to afford private-school tuition. Additionally, enrollment declines will lesson, resulting in more stable demand for private schools.

The Private Schools industry is composed of primary (kindergarten through sixth grade) and secondary (seventh through 12th grade) educational institutions that are predominantly funded through tuition fees and other private sources. Government or public agencies do not fund private schools; however, these schools may receive indirect assistance through certain programs or policies. Government-funded schools are included in the Public Schools industry (IBISWorld report 61111a).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
