Topics
Vassar College Confidence: 92% Arrow up

Vassar College is a private, coeducational, liberal arts college in the town of Poughkeepsie, New York, in the United States.

Founded in 1861 by Matthew Vassar, it was the first degree-granting institution of higher education for women in the United States.

It became coeducational in 1969, and now has a gender ratio at the national average.

The school is one of the historic Seven Sisters, the first elite female colleges in the U.S., and has a historic relationship with Yale University, which suggested a merger with the college before coeducation at both institutions.

Liberal arts college Confidence: 85% Arrow up

A liberal arts college is a college with an emphasis on undergraduate study in the liberal arts and sciences.

A liberal arts college aims to impart a broad general knowledge and develop general intellectual capacities, in contrast to a professional, vocational, or technical curriculum.

Students in a liberal arts college generally major in a particular discipline while receiving exposure to a wide range of academic subjects, including sciences as well as the traditional humanities subjects taught as liberal arts.

Although it draws on European antecedents, the liberal arts college is strongly associated with American higher education, and most liberal arts colleges around the world draw explicitly on the American model.

Mixed-sex education Confidence: 83% Arrow up

Mixed-sex education, also known as mixed-gender education, co-education or coeducation (abbreviated to co-ed or coed), is a system of education where males and females are educated together.

Whereas single-sex education was more common up to the 19th century, mixed-sex has since become standard in many cultures, particularly in Western countries.

Single-sex education, however, remains prevalent in many Muslim countries.

The relative merits of both systems have been the subject of debate.

Independent school Confidence: 78% Arrow up

An independent school is a school that is independent in its finances and governance; it is usually not dependent upon national or local government to finance its operations, nor reliant on taxpayer contributions, and is instead funded by a combination of tuition charges, donations, and in some cases the investment yield of an endowment.

It is typically governed by a board of governors that is elected independently of government, and has a system of governance that ensures its independent operation.

Boarding school Confidence: 76% Arrow up

A boarding school is a school at which most or all of the students live during the part of the year that they go to lessons.

The word 'boarding' is used in the sense of "bed and board," i.e., lodging and meals.

Some boarding schools also have day students who attend the institution by day and return to their families in the evenings.
