Private schools and summer camps guide
Welcome to the Educational Register

The Educational Register has been published by VincentCurtis since 1941 as a guide for parents and students to a select few private schools and summer programs, and as a source of free information and advice about independent education. Articles by heads of independent schools, summer study programs and camps are included to introduce you to a wide variety of subjects related to independent education. Boarding schools, day schools, girls schools, boys schools, military schools, and international schools are represented. In addition you'll find private camps and summer programs, home study and special needs programs. Most of these schools and camps are well known to our staff, who have traveled throughout North America and Western Europe over the years and have become familiar with their varied aims and methods. You can search by age, grade, geography, boarding or day, and then link to the schools and camps that interest you. Or you're welcome to contact us for comments and suggestions to fit your needs and interests.

Independent School Essential: Character Education

"Devoting time and resources to character education sets independent schools apart and distinguishes them from their counterparts. It is an important component of the overall educational program at independent schools. Students can learn about serving others through community service projects at all grade levels. The emphasis on character education is one of the reasons prospective families choose to enroll at independent schools. It’s also a primary reason independent schools produce such fine young people.."


Paul Brendan J. O'Shea, Charleston Day School, Charleston S.C.
