The rapid growth of Mussoorie as a hill resort may be attributed to the various boarding schools that started coming up as early as 1845.
The first being Waverley founded by The Jesus and Mary Sisters, followed by St George's College in 1853 by the Capuchin Fathers and was handed over to the Patrician Brothers in 1893. Woodstock School was established in 1854 and is run by American missionaries as an international educational institution. Wynberg Allen School came up in 1888 as a co-educational missionary institution.

The East India Railway Company established a school for the children of their officers at Jharipani called Oak Grove School in 1888.
