Wilmington has several private schools, but only a few include the high school grades. Since they follow individual standards instead of the state standards that the public high schools use, they don’t track graduation rates in the same way. For example, if a student transfers out of a private high school because of economic reasons, the private high school stops tracking that student, but doesn’t count them as a dropout.

  • Cape Fear Academy, at 3900 S. College Road, Wilmington [Map this], has a 100 percent graduation rate.
  • Coastal Christian High School, at 709 George Anderson Drive, Wilmington [Map this], has a 100 percent graduation rate.
  • Wilmington Christian Academy, at 1404 N. College Road, Wilmington [Map this], has a 100 percent graduation rate.

One way the public high schools measure the graduation rate is the four-year cohort rate, which is a way to show how many students graduated in four years. The average four-year cohort graduation rate for New Hanover County is 73.9 percent.

  • Ashley High School, at 555 Halyburton Memorial Parkway, Wilmington [Map this], has a 71.7 percent four-year cohort rate.
  • Hoggard High School, at 43055 Shipyard Blvd., Wilmington [Map this], has an 84.7 percent four-year cohort rate.
  • Laney High School, at 2700 N. College Road, Wilmington [Map this], has a 77.9 percent four-year cohort rate.
  • New Hanover High School, at 1307 Market St., Wilmington [Map this], has a 73.7 percent four-year cohort rate.
