BETHEL ACADEMY.

(fnttm nf Itithj. 


The peculiar location of the Institution seems to require particu¬ 
lar attention to the following subjects, viz: Classical Learning— 
A systematic and elevated course of Female Education—Education 
of Teachers for Common Schools—Preparation of Young Men for 
Business. 


CLASSICAL DEPARTMENT. 


We regard the study of the Classics of the highest importance 
in the education of both sexes. The experience and observation of 
many years as a teacher, as well as the nearly unanimous testimony 
of those best qualified to judge, lead us to believe that no course of 
instruction can do so much in a given time towards disciplining the 
mind, and treasuring up useful knowledge to so great an extent, as 
a suitable course of instruction in the Classics. The Languages 
will be so taught, that whatever the attainments of the student, they 
shall be rendered as practical as possible. 


FIRST CLASS. 


Arnold’s First and Second Latin Lessons ; Cornelius Nepos; 
Analysis and Arrangement of Latin sentences; Daily Exercises in

INSTRUCTION. 


The most approved methods of instruction and text hooks will he

to kindle up a desire for learning, and induce studious hahits ; to 
render all proper instruction in regard to their physical k heing, and 
to elevate the moral affections, will receive their due share of atten¬ 
tion. 

Both Departments of the Institution have been divided into three 
classes, and, as far as practicable, a systematic course of study 
marked out. As the consequence, a manifest advancement has al¬ 
ready been made in a more thorough course of instruction. Certi¬ 
ficates will be given to all who have completed the course in either 
department.
