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.

In Favor of Pre-College Academic Programs   

Summer academic programs not only impact students in the long run, the experience often correlates to a heightened level of motivation when a student returns to high school in the fall. As one pre-college alumnus reported to the program’s director, “Senior year has been a whirlwind so far, with classes, extracurricular activities, and college applications, but I've found that the things I learned from my classes [this summer] have been very helpful in my classes this year.” The personal growth, academic achievement, and interpersonal insights that a pre-college experience affords high school students … directly influence the way students see themselves and the college opportunities that await them
