Top 10 Most Expensive Secondary Schools In Nigeria

These are the schools with the most mind-blowing fees in the country.

"If education is expensive, try ignorance," is a quote that is supposed to discourage people from grumbling at the amount a few schools charge to formally educate children. But how much is too much? We can agree that the educational standard in Nigeria is pretty poor, and due to this, various private schools are springing up, promising international-standard education. The only caveat is that it will cost you, and cost you millions.

Here are the schools with some pretty shocking school fees range;

10. Whiteplains British School, Abuja: School Fees: N1.6 million

This boarding school aims to incorporate the British National Curriculum while also introducing the inquiry based approach of teaching and learning as expounded by Edexcel and Cambridge accreditation. It costs about N500,000 per annum and  N1.6 million per annum for the primary and secondary schools respectively, to cater for the tuition of a child in secondary. On entering the school premises, one could certainly be able to guess what having a child there would mean. It also boasts for being the school with the most sophisticated I.C.T. Lab in the World, with state of the art gadgets like  Virtual Reality Training, Artificial Intelligence, Hologram Monitors, e-Vests for its Trainers and many more.

9.  Loyala Jesuit, Abuja:   School Fees: N2.8 million

Located in Gidan Mangoro, Abuja, this private boarding school was established in 1996. The teaching and supervision is done by the members of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). The school is very selective when it comes to admitting students and each student pay a fee of about N2, 800, 000.

8. Meadow Hall, Lagos:   School Fees: N3 million.

This is one of the most expensive schools in Lagos. It was founded by Mrs. Kehinde Nwani in 2002. The school's main objective is to focus on developing every child's talents and make sure the students reach their highest potential.

6. Day Waterman College, Abeokuta:   School Fees: N3.7 million

This school has not been accorded as much attention as it should. Perhaps, this is due to the fact that it is located in Ogun state, a region not many people will automatically look at when thinking about extremely expensive schools. But they certainly are worth a second look as being on this list means they offer something special.

5. Lekki British International School, Lagos:  School Fees: N4 million
