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...

Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School

339 Nacoochee Drive
Rabun Gap, Georgia, USA Show Phone Number   

The founding of Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School and its longstanding relationship with the Presbyterian Church is both fascinating and inspirational. Rabun Gap began as two schools: Nacoochee Institute and Rabun Gap Industrial School. The Institute was established in 1903, in White County, Georgia. That year, the Reverend Joel Wade, a Presbyterian educational missionary, arrived in the community of Sautee to take over the grammar school and put it on solid footing. A few years later, the Reverend John Knox Coit became head of the school and helped to develop a rigorous liberal arts curriculum in the classical academic tradition. Meanwhile, 40...

The Madeira School

8328 Georgetown Pike
McLean, Virginia, USA Show Phone Number   

It is a wonderful thing to have been associated with a good school for fifty years in this great democratic society of ours. It is also a wonderful thing to have been a teacher for sixty years. I began teaching in 1896, the year I graduated at Vassar College. I look back over these sixty years with great satisfaction and great happiness. My own life has coincided in years with the great modern world, for I was born in May, 1873, and all historians are agreed that there have been more changes in the world since 1870 than there were...
