No. He was promised to, but after his father (Augustine Washington) died, there was not enough money.
George Washington didn't attend public schools or go to college. He was home schooled or possibly went to a school on his plantation or nearby. Nothing is known about who his teachers were. He may have taken some classes at William and Mary to obtain his surveyors license.
He did not go to college. George Washington was likely schooled at the home by his eldest brother. The reason he did not attend college, was primarily due to lack of funds. After the death of his father (Washington was 11, when his father died), a shortage of funds, prevented Washington from r…eceiving a formal education or University education, in England as his older brothers had done. George did receive a certificate from the College of William and Mary as a surveyor. (MORE)
Fifteen years of age is when he quit his education.. 15 15 15 15 15. thank you.:)
George Washington's education is largely a mystery. He obviously was taught basic reading and writing and arithmetic. His family most likely hired a school master or private tutors for him at their plantation home. High schools as know them did not exist until long after Washington's day.
Answer . It is not clear whether George Washington ever went to school at all. He was apparently educated wholly or primarily at home, by his mother and later his half-brother Lawrence. Today he would be referred to as "homeschooled", though in his own time this was common enough not tio require …a special name.. At all events, he certainly never attended College. His education was definitely over by age 16, when he worked on a team surveying the Fairfax lands in the Shenandoah Valley. The following year he went into the surveying business on his own account.

Washington's older brothers were sent to England for their education, however Washington was not. Due to the death of his father it was no longer economically feasible to send him away. Therefore president George Washington never graduated
No, he did not. The reason was primarily due to lack of funds. After the death of his father (Washington was 11, when his father died), a shortage of funds, prevented Washington from receiving a formal education or University education, in England as his older brothers had done. you tell me
Washington most likely did not go to school. Somebody on the plantation taught him the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic.
In Paris, where he lived all his life. . George Seurat went to Municipal School. He did not go to an art school.

I really needed help on this for my report and i found a very interesting website filled with great information about past presidents and stuff like that so I will give you the website URL address at the end of the information. Here you go. George Washington is a very interesting man with a height …of 5'9 and a weight of 176 lb he was love by most and respected by others. Anyways George Washington went into politics when he was very young and always sat bye the furnace with his father and disscused political views so he would get stronger in that view. :) Anyhow when he started to get older he decided that in life he didn't want to stay washing dirty clothes or sweeping dusty stores for minimum wage . He finally realized he wanted to be something more important. " How about something political, George, you know you can win a good debate" he father chanted in his head over and over again. Since the queen and king raised taxes he decided to fight back......(you know that whole story) ......... George Washington the most "said" name in America (maybe) he was one of the best and that's how GEORGE WASHINGTON GOT INTO POLITICAL VIEW. (MORE)
Washington had no formal schooling, it was all by private tutor, customary in his time
He attended no formal school; he was private tutored at home, customary in his day
No. He was schooled by private tutors, customary in his day. Hewas not a lawyer nor schooled in law.
He was a lonely pathetic drop out that never made the big marks. his parents were poor and didnt have enough money to even buy him some new clothes
So he and his brother Lawrence to find a cure for Lawrence but he end up dieing anyway
If you can read this you went to school longer than he did. Only went till fifth grade and he couldn't read.
He was 15 when he completed his tutoring, and did not receive any formal high school or college education due to the death of his father when he was 11. He learned surveying when he received an official appointment in Culpepper County (thanks to the powerful Fairfax family of Virginia, with which hi…s family was close). (MORE)

Depends on which times you mean... One answer is because when he became pres. He was trading with France and Britain because he wanted to stay neutral and not start a war.

Because when George Wahsington was in school he never really payed attention in class but he realized when he got picked for president it really did because you have to learn to get a good reputation for school.
Washington did not have any formal schooling. He was an apprentice to a surveyor, a British military officer in the War of 1812, General of American forces in the revolution, and President. He was also a plantation owner. His schooling was very limited. An education man in his time knew how to speak… and write French, but Washington did not. Since he was a second son it was expected that he would get some formal training through an apprenticeship ( which he did) to be able to support himself. When he married Martha she was a wealthy widow and this gave him the means to go beyond the standard of living that he may have normally had. The French and Indian War also gave him a means to go to Congress in 1776 and cite that he was the man to command the American troops. He was smart, very political, and had the ability to command people. (MORE)
i dont think he went to school because i have been looking for ever soo no school
Not much is known about his early schooling. Somebody taught him the basics but just who did is not known.
Washington, the son of a small planter, grew up in rural VA. He did not go to any formal schools and as a young man was apprenticed as a surveyor. He became a British officer in the French and Indian War and this is where he gained military experience that would serve him well in the revolution. Aft…er the war he married Martha Curtis a rich widow with 2 children. After the death of his brother he inherited Mt. Vernon and became a plantation owner. (MORE)

Schools only covered the first 3 grades--when schools existed. George Washington, like many men, were self-taught. He went to live on his older brother's farm where 17 year old George taught himself how to do surveys of land. The older neighbor--the father in law of George's brother--lived next …door and often visited. The older man had a library of books, which he allowed George to read; the man also tutored George while they visited. Later, this same man sent young George Washington over the Blue Ridge Mountains to survey the man's 4000 acres there. At the time, everyone believed the total land of the US "ended" shortly after the Blue Ridge Mountains... over time, as George and other explorers continued into Ohio etc., they realized the US went many miles further. Again, much later, they believed the US ended 'about' at the Mississippi River. Once again, explorers discovered this was untrue. But George was one of those early surveyors-explorers who returned with great tales of the land, the plants, and Native Americans. George spent most of his time journaling and drawing what he saw, rather than surveying. He met Native Americans under friendly circumstances. When George was later sent into Ohio during the French and Indian War, George experienced early military failure--he never wanted to go to war again. But, he was pressed into service again later... and made the President of the United States.. (MORE)
