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

The Art of  Taking Risks: Building Character Through a Vital Pre-College Visual Arts Program   

As an artist, arts administrator and educator, I have seen first-hand how a critical-thinking model of arts education can profoundly change a student's performance as well as his or her own understanding of self. The transformational power of a challenging visual arts program goes far beyond preparation for a possible career in the arts and should be considered seriously by parents of all students - artistically inclined or not."
