Pops: Sorry honey, tell Madison his father has to stay at the office real late. Oh, and tell Consuela she has to take him to Kumon tonight.

Mother: Well Clive, I why don't we just send the boy to Phillips Academy. I don't want to keep on making Consuela stay late. She already complained to me about his tantrums and his spoiled behaviour. I am not going let that little fucker drive her to quit- I need my personal time Clive! I need that woman!

Pops: Alright I'll call Henry and see if I can pull some strings. And check with the SSAT tutors and tell them we'll pay whatever they want to put him to the soonest slot.

A large and prestigious boarding school in Andover, MA. The school has needs-blind admissions and all are accepted on their own merits, not ability of parents to pay.

The school is huge: five different residential clusters, with five different Disciplinary Committees. In recent years the new Head of School has led a charge towards Political Correctness. So the most popular campus pastime is playing “I’m not privileged.” This is ironic at a school that only accepts one of eight applicants and has nearly a billion dollar endowment.

The school emphasizes that students have to be “Nice.” This is offset by faculty who barely know the kids. It’s the same old “Sink or Swim,” School that it’s been for 250 years, with a new Politically Correct face.
Phillips Academy used to pipeline students to the Ivies: that’s ancient history.
