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.

FEATURED ARTICLE

Navigating Challenging Educational Waters   

The rapidity of change [in teaching and learning] has made educators review our practice and, frankly, forced us to take a good, hard look in the mirror… I give you as an example, the independent boarding school not bound by the traditional class day.  Erased are the artificial lines of opening and closing bells – of attendance taking and dismissal.  How do such schools fit into this brave new world of online learning and MOOCs (massive open online courses)?  The answer seems to be: Very well indeed.  Four simple yet critical elements make the difference.”
