During colonial times education was not thought of as being structured or formal for students. As a matter of fact educating children was something that was the responsibility of the family, church, and surrounding community. As time went on “Old field schools” were developed for teaching the youth when they were not planting, harvesting, or completing other farm related
Latin Grammar Schools
After “old field schools” came “Latin Grammar Schools”. The main curriculum was focused on classical studies. It emphasized the study of work done by Hesiod, Virgil, Horace, and Homer just to name a few. The schools were centered on being strict and constructive as they
geared to help their students prepare for college to obtain clergy or teaching positions.
English Grammar Schools
As the colonies continued to grow and veer more towards European nations smaller one-man schools were developed. Such schools were to provider a wider range of education in subjects including modern languages, math, accounting, logic, English grammar, and geography. The schools however were only concentrated in areas in which there was high population and need
for education. The downfall for the English grammar schools was the fact that one person ended up taking on
many roles. They would act as the trustee, faculty member, headmaster, and professor. The English grammar schools began to fall victim to financial woes as their existence (financially) became dependent upon the school alone. As a result they begin to adopt the“Academy
movement” which combined the curriculum and theories of the “Latin Grammar Schools” and “English Grammar Schools” Academies
The first academy established in the US for student enrollment was in 1763. Academies differed in their scopes and missions. Some offered curriculum that would allow students to prep for college while others prepared them for careers. Students were housed and assigned faculty masters who would care for them. As time passed on the cities grew and more became more
corrupt leaving many parents wondering how their children could escape the complex communities they lived in and be taught in a location that was less harmful.
Very similar to academies, boarding schools offer a “safe haven” for students to learn and grow as individuals. The campuses all strive to emphasize on the development of student qualities. You will find mission statements which teach students self-discipline, patience, generosity, and
integrity which is something that is needed throughout life. Boarding schools also took it a step further by offering therapeutic services to students who faced troubling experiences or dealt with mental/behavioral issues. Parents have found these schools to be such a tremendous help to their children and since this time boarding schools have continued to evolve to offer more services and education choices for teens who otherwise may not have been given the chance.
