  1. Perhaps one of those “schools” run by well to do benefactors, whose purpose was to take young children off the streets, usually orphans and children of those of less than desirable characters, and teach them the basics of working in service for those seeking household help? Girls were taught how to clean properly, basic kitchen skills, laundry and sewing, etc. Boys were also taught useful skills, such as shoe repair, woodworking skills, etc., but they were not coeducational institutions.
    Just a guess.
