Excerpt from Dormitories in Connection With Public Secondary Schools

The first secondary schools in the United States were the Latin grammar schools. These were followed by the academies; and the academies, in turn, gave way to the public high schools. In tracing the development of dormitories in connection with public secondary schools it is necessary to determine where private education left off and public education began. It is also necessary to determine the demarcation between elementary courses and secondary courses. No such hard-and-fast rules can be drawn. It is generally accepted, theoretically, that the high schools were the first free public secondary schools, but there were localities in colonial days where the schools were essentially free. Monroe says that from the time of their foundation in 1644 the schools of Dedham, Mass., were free in the modern sense of the term, for they were supported wholly by public taxation. There were academies whose courses of study more nearly coincided with the modern conception of elementary curricula than those of secondary curricula. The earliest schools in Massachusetts, technically known as free grammar or town schools, imparted secondary as well as elementary education.

As a rule the early schools, both elementary and secondary, received their support from a variety of sources, such as the rental of public lands, tolls from ferries, fish weirs, etc., bequests of land, money, live stock, and slaves, and in nearly all cases from tuition.

Nothing is found concerning dormitories with the Latin grammar schools. These schools were local and prepared for college. The academies came into existence to provide a more liberal education for those who did not want to go to college and for those who did not have secondary school advantages at home. The semipublic academies, which were the recognized institutions of secondary instruction from the Revolutionary days to the middle of the nineteenth century, have been included in this brief historical résumé. While they were not public in the sense that we understand public education to-day, they did receive such support from the State as warrants their inclusion in the discussion of public secondary schools.

With academies. - One of the objects in the establishment of the early academies in colonial America was to provide secondary education for those who were not able to secure the same in their home communities. Benjamin Franklin, as early as 1744, in his plan for the establishment of an academy in Philadelphia included provisions for boarders.
