Abstract:
Before the development of public education in the state, private schools were the main source of education and these were generally for male students. Prior to 1825, 177 academies had been charted by the Legislature. All counties had at least one, except Ashe, Columbus, and Person. Lawrence comments on a few of the more well-known ones, Caldwell Academy, the Bingham School, military schools, and schools for girls.
