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.

How Can Four Short Weeks Make Such a Huge Impact?

"The 4-week summer pre-college program is among the most exciting, impactful, rewarding, and exhausting because it meets the needs of today’s young creative students.  Summer art programs throughout the country provide an ideal time for high school students to step away from “the grind” and exercise different skills.  Don’t be fooled for it’s not all play, in fact it’s quite rigorous just in a different way! It’s not about studying …it’s about making.  It’s about giving students the creative tools and guidance to help them make something, make sense of the world, make objects, make connections, make community,  make statements, make change, make new relationships, make an identity, and  yes……make art.  And make they do."


Debra L. Samdperil, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA
