Just Released: Financial State of the Industry BIIS Financial and Operational Indicators: 2019-2020

The only research study based on the audited financial statements of independent schools, the Financial State of the Industry draws on data from hundreds of NBOA member schools collected in the BIIS platform. This report considers financial and operational data from the singular 2019-20 school year, which ended with remote instruction for most independent U.S. schools. Changes in schools’ financial health occurred both before the COVID-19 pandemic and as a result of it.
