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

Taking Time Out   

“In today’s globalized world and in current uncertain economic times, an applicant who has something out of the ordinary on his or her resume is more likely to attract an employer’s attention and interest.  Having a degree may not be enough; it is what you have done that others haven’t that will make you stand out.  In the final analysis, what may appear to be a diversion, even an indulgence, before resuming one’s formal education and training, may turn out to be the most beneficial aspect of a young person’s preparation for adult life and a rewarding career.”

 

Ralph Dennison, The Oxford Edge, Oxford, England
