    I really don't know if there's one word for them. "Academies" used to be used but that now has very different connotations.

    As an aside, this is quite funny: http://five3one.files.wordpress.com/...pg?w=300&h=248

    My (insincere) apologies for going off-topic. Thanks, emsr2d2 for that cartoon. I loved Larson's work, and my respect for him increased immensely when he retired because he felt that the series (The Far Side) was becoming repetitive, and he didn't want to enter the "Graveyard of Mediocre Cartoons."

    Respect!

    How about selective schools for those that have an entrance exam?
