When Business First releases its annual Guide to WNY Schools, public and private schools are combined in the report. But now biz first is out with a ranking focused solely on private schools to see how they stack up against one another. The rankings are based on NYS test scores. Many area private high schools will hold their open houses this month or next so a lot of people will be interested in the private school rankings.

Top Private High Schools:
1. Nardin Academy
2. Sacred Heart
3. Mt. St. Mary Academy
4. Notre Dame
5. Christian Central Academy
6. St. Joe's Collegiate
7. Holy Angels
8. St. Francis HS
9. Immaculata Academy
10. St. Mary's HS

Schools like Canisius, The Park School and Nichols are not included because they use their own testing instead of NYS tests.

The ten page directory is complete with middle school and elementary school rankings. It is in this week's Business First.
