Private School Locations - Current

The National Center for Education Statistics’ (NCES) Education Demographic and Geographic Estimate (EDGE) program develops bi-annually updated point locations (latitude and longitude) for private schools included in the NCES Private School Survey (PSS). The PSS is conducted to generate biennial data on the total number of private schools, teachers, and students, and to build an accurate and complete list of private schools to serve as a sampling frame for NCES surveys. The PSS school location and associated geographic area assignments are derived from reported information about the physical location of private schools. The school geocode file includes supplemental geographic information for the universe of schools reported in the most current PSS school sample, and they can be integrated with the survey files through use of institutional identifiers included in both sources. Check the SCHOOLYEAR attribute in the data table to determine file vintage. For more information about NCES school point data, see: and collections are available for the following year:2015-16
