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.

Teaching with E R A S E R S

“This philosophy first uses the literal purpose of an eraser to guide classroom culture… Much like an eraser allows us to remove and improve upon our mistakes, the philosophy of teaching with erasers incorporates the same security and growth mentality throughout all classroom actions. 

“The second use for the eraser comes in its role as an educational acronym: Expectations, Relevance, Autonomy with Accountability, Stress with Support, Enjoyment, Reflection, and Success. These seven characteristics are consistently visible throughout the plans and lessons of the great teaching I have observed… It is important to note that they are rarely mutually exclusive in practice and are, in fact, commonly seen building upon one another.”

Devin Clifford, Cardigan Mountain School, Canaan, NH
