The Regents adopted standards for incorporating private academies (1801) and colleges (1811), and required academies to offer acceptable programs in order to receive aid from the Literature Fund, established in 1801.The Legislature made the Regents trustees of the State Library and the collections of the State Museum in 18, respectively.In 1786 a Regents' committee recommended that colleges and academies have their own trustees, and that the Regents be given broader responsibilities for overseeing education in New York.Legislative bills to that end were introduced in the Assembly by Regent Alexander Hamilton, and in the Senate by Regent Ezra L'Hommedieu, in 1787. The act empowered the Regents to "visit and inspect all the colleges, academies, and schools" in the state, award higher academic degrees, hold and distribute funds, and exercise other powers of a corporation.Unification of elementary, secondary, and higher education under one administration was considered and rejected by the constitutional conventions of 18, and proposed in legislative bills from time to time.

However, the academic programs of all secondary schools were under general supervision of the Regents.
