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...

Brandon Hall School

1701 Brandon Hall Drive
Atlanta, Georgia, USA Show Phone Number   

With a focus on the individual, Brandon Hall is designed for college bound students who, for a variety of reasons, need very small group or one-to-one class instruction in an educational environment that emphasizes organization, structure, accountability, the ordering of priorities, compensatory skills, and multi-sensory instruction. As an accredited, nonprofit, nonsectarian, coeducational day and boys’ boarding school for students in grades 4-12, Brandon Hall enrolls approximately 130 students with a very low pupil-teacher ratio. It has often been referred to as “the intensive care of education” because of its small classes and effective programs for college bound students with learning...

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."

Darlington School

1014 Cave Spring Road SW
Rome, Georgia, USA Show Phone Number   

What is it about this place? Imagine a school where 5-year-olds star in musicals and 8-year-olds master PowerPoint; where 11-year-olds are members of an orchestra and 13-year-olds compete on the lacrosse field; where 15-year-olds build robots and 17-year-olds lead the Honor Council. At Darlington School, they do this and much more. Our students are nurtured in small classes.

Dunn School

P.O. Box 98
Los Olivos, California, USA Show Phone Number   

The essence of Dunn School is found in this simple statement: Dunn cherishes and cultivates individual talents in a safe, nurturing and challenging environment. I was struck by this concept when I first became acquainted with Dunn. For me, the most important two words are "individual talents." In the Dunn community, we understand that every single student arrives with certain talents and gifts. These gifts may be immediately apparent in the classroom or on the athletic field, or they may be as yet undiscovered potential, waiting to be realized in an art or music room, on top of a mountain,...

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...

Kiski School

1888 Brett Lane
Saltsburg, Pennsylvania, USA Show Phone Number   

The Kiski School sits on a wooded bluff high above the confluence of two sparkling streams that form the Kiskiminetas River, which then flows north and west toward the Allegheny River. To the Native Americans who originally fished and hunted near this junction, Kiskiminetas was a metaphor for enlightenment. Early settlers to the area also recognized the energy of this place in the form of its rejuvenating mineral springs, whose refreshing attributes came to be so well known by the mid-nineteenth century that a group of enterprisers built a resort hotel on the grounds where the school now stands.

Mercersburg Academy

Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, USA Show Phone Number   

Mercersburg's proud history and rich traditions date back to 1836, when the Academy's predecessor, Marshall College, was founded at Mercersburg. Marshall College moved to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1853, but the preparatory department of the college remained on its original site. It was chartered as Mercersburg College in 1865.

Middlesex School

1400 Lowell Road
Concord, Massachusetts, USA Show Phone Number   

In 1901, Frederick Winsor opened his school in Concord. Middlesex, named for the Massachusetts county in which it is located, was to be different from the other academies and "church schools" of the day. Mr. Winsor wanted his school to be non-denominational, where students from different religious backgrounds could learn together. From the very beginning, his mission was "to find the promise that lies hidden" in every student. The design for Middlesex's campus was created by the sons of Frederick Law Olmsted, the greatest landscape architect of the 19th century and the designer of New York's Central Park, Boston's Emerald...
