Tuition at several elite private schools in Los Angeles County will reach $25,000 or close to it next school year. We have a very competitive independent school market in Houston; it is made up of a host of excellent schools. Thus tuition here in Houston tends to be high on most reputable campuses. Though our tuition runs around $16,000 per year — I do believe you get what you pay for. It is a good thing Houston is not L.A.
