Who typically goes to a prep school?

Boys or girls enter preparatory schools around the age of 8 and usually leave between the ages of 11 and 13, often to attend one of the private secondary institutions (see public school). A high school is a type of high school that prepares students for college entry. Also known as high schools or academies, most are private schools that require students to apply for admission during elementary or middle school. While some schools have a religious affiliation, others do not.

These schools are open to both male and female students, although you can find some that only admit one gender. These schools may also require students to live on-site and act as boarding schools.

Academically, attending an independent school in England is associated with the equivalent of two additional years of schooling at the age of 16, according to ISC figures. There are public, private, parish and charter schools that call themselves college preparatory schools.

And while these schools may be selective in requiring tests and interviews for admission, they could also be open enrollment, accepting anyone who shows up.
