emphasis upon character-building which

Its aim is particularly to meet the re-
quirements of the following classes of
pupils :

1. Those who are preparing for college.

2. Those who, through interruption of
study by ill-health, travel abroad, or loss
of parents, require individual care and

DEDHAM. MASS. FOP\ GIP\LS 20 minutes from Boston

THIS school, which has a large day de-
partment, can accommodate twelve
resident pupils. The training is such
as is given to English girls of good birth
and breeding, and Miss Faulkner's chief
aim in the education of her resident pupils
is to teach them the importance of a well
rounded development and to give them a
deep sense of a woman's responsibilities.
They are trained to see the necessity for
efficiency, unselfishness and poise; to un-
derstand what constitutes a successful
home-maker and to have a right sense of
values. Miss Faulkner prefers to receive
pupils at as early an age as possible, and
expects each one to fit herself for a
definite career, preferably that of home-
maker.

FEES : For girls under twelve years, $ 1 200 :

for girls of twelve to fifteen, $1500 per year.

No extras.
