St Paul’s School, Concord, New Hampshire

A leading co-educational college preparatory school in the United States. It was founded on Apr. 3, 1856, by a Boston physician, George Cheyne Shattuck, Jr. Dr. Shattuck wanted to educate his sons in a place where natural beauty could play a part in the boys' education. St. Paul's was influenced by two other schools. The Round Hill School in Northampton, Massachusetts, where Shattuck went to school, provided a progressive education model, and the Flushing Institute, Flushing, Long Island, provided the model of an intense religious life. The first rector, the Rev. Henry Augustus Coit, attended the Flushing Institute.
