Baylor School

P.O. Box 1337
Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA Show Phone Number   

Some think a good school means good test scores. If that's the case, we're in fine shape (remind us to introduce you to our students who earned perfect scores on the SAT and the National Latin Exam). When the national Advanced Placement program was first rated in 1954, and schools outside New England were allowed to enter, Baylor was the only institution south of Virginia and east of the Mississippi that qualified to participate. Fifty years later, Baylor students can choose from college-level AP courses in 22 subjects, ranging from Studio Art to Environmental Science. No wonder more than 80...

Henry Harrison Culver founded Culver Military Academy in 1894 "for the purpose of thoroughly preparing young men for the best colleges, scientific schools and businesses of America."

Alexander Fleet, under whose guidance the Academy made rapid progress. By 1939, under the leadership of Gen. Leigh Gignilliat, Culver had achieved national and international prominence. Steady growth has continued throughout Culver's history. Culver...

Eagle Hill School

P.O. Box 116
Hardwick, Massachusetts, USA Show Phone Number   

Over the last forty years Eagle Hill School has steadfastly challenged and redefined the conventional wisdom regarding the education of students with learning (dis)abilities. Today, the genius of the Eagle Hill philosophy remains its simplicity. As you have probably inferred from my use of parentheses around the prefix “dis,” our philosophy is grounded in the belief that our students are not disabled at all. To understand the difficulties that they have faced in other academic settings requires a careful look at the unfortunate and limiting ways in which most schools view their students. At Eagle Hill School, we understand that...

Houghton Academy

9790 Thayer Street
Houghton, New York, USA Show Phone Number   

Houghton Academy is a Christian, college-prep boarding and day school enrolling students in grades 6 - 12. Houghton Academy was founded in 1883, a long time before computers and websites. What would these pages look like if this was the mid-eighteen ninety’s? Certainly the dress code was a bit different. Science lab equipment was less developed. Students arrived at school via horse and buggy. Classrooms lacked overheads and double-pane windows. The differences would be many and obvious. As I think of the differences, I am equally conscious of what would be the same. Buildings are still constructed with bricks. Students...

Getting to know the three students on our home page should help you understand some of the ideas that we value at Lawrence Academy and the ways in which we believe we are different from other boarding schools that also champion excellence in all areas of school life.

Midland School

P.O. Box 8
Los Olivos, California, USA Show Phone Number   

Since 1932, Midland has been setting itself apart from typical educational models. Academics are, of course, the first priority, but Midland students do much more than read books and take tests. For more than 75 years, Midland has involved itself in life prep, not just college prep, and Paul and Louise Squibb would be very pleased that the little school in the woods they founded in the midst of the Depression still teaches self-reliance, simplicity, and service. Calculus too. Midland is a fully accredited, all-boarding, co-educational college preparatory school, and a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. As other schools get larger and...

Milton Academy

170 Centre Street
Milton, Massachusetts, USA

Milton's Bicentennial in 1998 marked the Academy's charter, given in 1798 under the Massachusetts land-grant policy. It bequeathed to the school a responsibility to "open the way for all the people to a higher order of education than the common schools can supply" (Richard Hale, Milton Academy, 1948). Milton was established as a coeducational day school, and preparation for college was the primary goal of the school's program. Just after the school's centennial, reacting to a marked increase in the interest of separate education for young women, the Academy was divided into separate schools. For many years, the Milton Academy...

New York Military Academy

78 Academy Avenue
Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York, USA Show Phone Number   

NYMA was founded in 1889 by Charles Jefferson Wright, a Civil War veteran and former school teacher from New Hampshire who believed that a military structure provided the best environment for academic achievement, a philosophy to which the school still adheres. Wright's successor, Sebastian Jones, presided over the Academy from 1894-1922, guiding it during its most critical period of growth from a young and small institution of 48 cadets, through a disastrous fire in 1910, and throughout an extensive reconstruction program. NYMA developed into one of the best known military schools for young men in the United States. Successive superintendents...
