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.

A Summer of Substance: A Case for Teen Travel and Summer Camp 

"The extraordinary benefits and plain old fun of camping and travel cannot be contested. Quite simply, within the arena of these activities, teens shift their focus from high achievement pressure to themselves, each other, and the world around them. If we believe what child development specialists say, then adolescence should be a time of self-discovery and identity development. As the pendulum swings back in the direction of programs that provide teens with an opportunity to take on these challenges, I can’t help but sigh with relief. Summer academic programs are wonderful and provide much needed opportunities to many students. However, what good is it to be the smartest kid in the room without the perspective, passion, interpersonal skills, and self-awareness to drive achievement and shape goals toward something bigger than oneself?'"

Ira Solomon, Westcoast Connection / 360° Student Travel, Weston, FL
