Historic US Accredited Independent College-Prep Day & Boarding High School For Sale (No. 2888)

Our client is selling their highly acclaimed and historic East Coast US co-ed Gr. 9-12PG, accredited, SEVIS-certified, independent, preparatory day and boarding high school, with graduates accepted at top universities in US and internationally. Building on its multi-century heritage of distinguished boarding school education, it is situated on a spectacular +100-acre, tree-lined campus within an hour of international airports. This highly sought-after, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, provides a buyer the chance to acquire a premium American boarding high school in the prestigious US market, leveraging its I-20 visa program to recruit international students enabling new owners the ability to develop an expanded day and boarding high school program. Based on current campus capacity (and under new ownership), a preliminary 2-year recruiting plan will conservatively increase international boarding enrollment by 25 boarders in 2020/21 and another 25 in 2021/22, reaching breakeven and conservatively forecasting $4.5M revenue and $900K EBITDA. Building on this, the current boarding capacity provides additional space to expand enrollment by another 137% and an increase in revenue of $5.5M to the bottom line (with no extra facilities required). And this does not take into account day enrollment. Additionally, it is SEVIS-certified and authorized to enroll international students. This critical certification provides a strategic platform for offshore operators’ direct access to the elite international US boarding school market. New ownership can, in turn, utilize current and expanded academic and dormitory space to support growth in international and local students in an unrivaled location and the ability to increase enrollment up to 300 to 500 students (in conjunction with expanded facilities). The school is exceptionally well-positioned for growth, leveraging its coveted college-prep boarding program and SEVIS certification. It has put into place a solid foundation to operate a high-quality private boarding high school only an hour from international airports and provides a turn-key platform for offshore investors seeking entry into the premium US private boarding school market.
