WICHE Insights | New Data About Private High School Graduates


In the December 2016 edition of Knocking at the College Door, WICHE projected that the U.S. is headed into a period of stagnation in the overall number of high school graduates it produces and declining numbers of graduates from private religious and nonsectarian schools. New data confirm WICHE’s overall projections, but declines in the future number of private high school graduates no longer appear imminent through at least 2018.

WICHE is not issuing new projections of private high school graduates at this time, but the newly released data are described in this brief report, Knocking update: new data about private high school graduates, and have been posted to knocking.wiche.edu/data so that users of the Knocking projections have access to this important new information about private high school graduates.
