Spr ingside School '%Eg ff&


COATED in one of the most beautiful suburbs of Philadelphia,
424 feet above sea level.

The school has a small resident department and a large
day department. Resident pupils, therefore, have the advantage,
in their home life, of individual attention from the teachers; and
in their class work, of the stimulus afforded by competition. The
school, which was founded in 1879, has always done thorough
work in both its college preparatory and regular courses. The
house was specially built for school purposes, and is well equipped,
comfortable and sanitary. The school grounds afford ample fa-
cilities for outdoor sports. .

Lakewood School for Girls

A SCHOOL in which girls can live near to nature, enjoy many
healthful sports, study and recite all in the open air, the
year around.
A small school, where girls get abundant individual attention.
During 1913 to 1914 we had one resident teacher for every two
resident pupils.

Our patrons will gladly testify that we have "made good"
with girls whom we have fitted for the positions they now occupy
in some of the highest social circles in the country.

Send for a list of parents with whom you can talk about our
school. Address

the city. Out-of-door sports en-
couraged. Horseback riding.
