BOARDING SCHOOLS BOYS



Moses Brown School

Providence, R. I.

SETH K. GIFFORD, Ph.D., Principal

FOUNDED 1784

A school where thorough work is done, which offers a modern equipment and the
very best facilities, and from which 20 students enter college yearly.

A heavy endowment makes possible a low tuition rate, while scholarship funds
enable us to provide for a few boys of unusual merit whose means are limited.

The Principal gives his personal care to seeing that every boy does his best all
the time.

THE LOWER SCHOOL DEPARTMENT

for boys of 8 years and upward is entirely separate from the Upper School.

Very particular care is taken of these boys in their home life and sports, as well as
in their school work.

TUITION, $500 PER YEAR.
