Moving to northern Oakland County. Powers and Pontiac Notre Dame are about the same distance door to door. Powers is several thousand dollars cheaper per year. Single-sex Catholic high schools Marian and Brother Rice in Bloomfield Hills are also options, but a bit further. Thank you.

I have never heard of powers. I certainly know of Brother Rice. It is a good private school. Country Day is also nearby and has a good reputation. If reputation is your primary concern, spring for $36K a year and send the kid to Cranbrook. National reputation.

Of course no matter which one you choose, in college, your kids will be sitting next to my kid from local public schools, and both will be sitting next to some kids from an awful school in Taylor, or Ypsilanti. Which one of them will be the boss? the one who is tthe best salesman.

Powers has an excellent reputation. They moved a few years ago to a new campus which was formerly used by the Michigan School for the Deaf. It is conveniently located and in a much safer part of Flint than their former campus.
I don't know anyone with kids there currently, but I know quite a few former graduates.
I can't speak for the other schools.

Commuting to Brother Rice or Marian would be obscene from Northern Oakland County for high school. If you really wanted to send your kids there, you should probably live closer in Bloomfield Twp or Troy at the least.

Notre Dame Prep really grew big with the boom in the late-90s/early 2000s in North Oakland County and has really grown into a very good school.

No idea about Powers since that doesn't draw students from Metro Detroit.
