There’s no surprise at the top of the High School Football America Private Schools Top 25. The top four teams in the Private 25 are also the same teams at the top of the High School Football America 100 national rankings that were released last Sunday
Leading the way is St. John Bosco (California), our 2019 national champs. The Braves are followed by Trinity League foe Mater Dei (California), which was our top private school over the last two seasons.
Maryland’s St. Frances Academy, whose only loss was to Mater Dei, finishes No. 3, followed by Florida 7A champ St. Thomas Aquinas at No. 4 and IMG Academy (Florida) at No. 5.
California, Florida and Ohio each placed four teams in the rankings that are created with our proprietary algorithm. Louisiana and Maryland have three private schools each in the national rankings.
