Forbes has released the Top American Colleges 2014 ranking list yesterday.

Williams College is this years’s leading higher education institution in the U.S., closely followed by Stanford University and Swarthmore College. Find below the detailed list….

The detailed list of rankings, with cost per year for the current year was released by Forbes yesterday. For the convenience of readers I have also projected the cost of education with each college in 5,10 and 15 years time from now at an inflation rate of 5.00 %.

 Depending on your child’s age, and when he or she is likely to go to college, you can refer that particular column to ascertain the cost of education when he or she is ready to go to college.
