Participants at the Ramsey House Finishing School for Young Ladies spent part of their school vacation studying the Victorian era — a time of morals, modesty and manners. Instead of seasonal attire like swimsuits and flip flops, these girls donned corsets and petticoats. And rather than roasting marshmallows, they enjoyed formal tea parties.
Is this a time-travel experience, or a life experience? Is there a place for finishing schools in today’s world? Would you send your children to a finishing school or history camp?
