Nebraska's Private Educational Institutions

Nebraska's educational advantages are fully in accord with the increase in population and business development of the State. Colleges, academies, seminaries and schools of a higher order of learning are springing up wherever the demand seems to warrant their existence. Nebraska has a population of exceptionally high order intellectually, and the encouragement of private educational institutions is the natural result of a prevailing ambition for advanced learning. The latest educational statistics show that there are in the State sixty-five private educational institutions-schools that do not come under the general classification of public schools and do not receive their support or maintenance from the public school funds of the State, or by State appropriation.

The list of private educational institutions given in this connection comprise some of the very be§t schools in the country, and as a whole are much above the average of those found in the older eastern states. The property value controlled by these schools is estimated above $2,500,000, which item of itself indicates a highly prosperous condition of business among these institutions of learning.
