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
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.
