Harvard students and boarding schools

A while ago, I was looking into the elite New England boarding high schools (Andover, Exeter, etc) when I saw that these schools had something in common-at all of them, the most common college that their students chose to attend after graduating was an Ivy. How many Harvard students typically come from a boarding school? Any help to satisfy my curiosity would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Those statistics are not published by Harvard, but are published by the individual high school's themselves. For example, if you look at Exeter's high school profile that is sent to colleges, you will find a list of colleges students matriculated to. Add up the numbers for the Ivy League schools and then add up the numbers for all others schools and you will have your answer.

    BTW: Those statistics are over a 3-year span (2010 to 2012), so divide by 3.
