Gould's Academy 


Gould’s Academy was incorporated by act of the Legislature, 
January 27, 1836, and opened the following September, with 
Isaac Randall, a graduate of Bowdoin College, as its first. 
Principal. Since that time, the school has continued in active 
operation, and has always enjoyed a large share of public con¬ 
fidence. Located in a healthful and thriving village, and sur¬ 
rounded by picturesque scenery, its advantages for the moral 
and physical development of the student are unsurpassed. 
Bethel, a town of about twenty-five hundred inhabitants, is sit¬ 
uated among the hills of Oxford County, Maine. No section of 
New England surpasses it in the beauty of its scenery. The 
mountains near by are detached members of the Appalachian 
system; the Androscoggin river winds slowly through the beau¬ 
tiful valley, just at the foot of the low hill upon which the 
village is built. The village is on the Grand Trunk Railway, 
in easy communication with Lewiston, Portland, and Boston. 

The people of the town have high ideals, are refined and 
educated; they are loyal to the school and all its interests, 
and contribute in no small degree to the pleasure of student 
life at Bethel. The church and social relations are far ahead 
of the ordinary New England village. Scholars here, breathing 
the invigorating mountain air, free from the distracting influ¬ 
ences of larger towns, have every incentive to high scholarly 
attainments. These advantages were early recognized, and 
the success of the school from its organization has been a 
source of gratification to those having its welfare in charge. 
Students have centered here from all parts of Maine and from 
other States, and not a few of the Cuban patriots, whose strug¬ 
gles for freedom won the admiration of the world, caught their 
first inspiration of liberty, while residing among the hills of

Oxford County, and pursuing their studies at Gould’s Academy 
in Bethel. 

The school aims not only to prepare its students for the high¬ 
er institutions of learning, but, through the foundation 
Aim of correct habits of thought and action, to fit them 
to face wisely and fearlessly the problems that will 
confront them in after life. Its present standards, its meth¬ 
ods, its ideals are upon the lines the most earnest educators of 
the day are approving. Especial care is taken to secure and re¬ 
tain teachers of character and scholarship, teachers who realize 
the nobility of their calling and who purpose to make the pro¬ 
fession of teaching a lifework. The close attention to the in¬ 
dividual needs of each pupil is a special feature of the school. 
Being under the almost constant oversigh of their teachers,, 
the students are trained to habits of regularity and applica¬ 
tion, and receive, in the fullest degree, the benefits which come 
from close personal association with their instructors. 

There are two distinct courses of study, classical and aca¬ 
demic. Each is of four years, and designed to be 
Courses of of equally high standard or requirements. The 

Study classical course is designed for those who intend to 
continue their education in some of our higher insti¬ 
tutions. The course may be varied to meet the requirements 
of any college. Special attention is given to securing good 
idiomatic English translations of the languages studied. Prac¬ 
tice is also had in reading the ancient languages at sight, mak¬ 
ing ability to do this the real test of proficiency. But while 
facility in translating Greek and Latin is deemed of special 
importance in a student’s preparation, still, the greatest good 
comes from the constant exercise of carefully deciding questions 
of grammatical construction, hence this is given careful atten¬ 
tion throughout the entire course. Latin Composition is taken 
in connection with Cicero, Greek Composition in connection 
with the Anabasis, Mythology in connection with Virgil. The 
academic course is intended for those who want a good general 
education as a preparation for their life-work. This course,

well completed, fits students for the higher technical or scien¬ 
tific schools, for teaching, or for practical every-day life. 

Special attention is paid to those studies which, year by year, 
are more demanded from educated persons—notably, the Eng¬ 
lish studies. The foreign languages, besides being studied for 
their own sake, are pursued with a view to a better understand¬ 
ing of our own English language. 

Candidates applying for admission to the school must pre¬ 
sent testimonials of good moral character from 
Admission at least two persons, together with statements 
certifying to their standing in the school last at¬ 
tended. Students beginning either course must be proficient 
in United States History and Geography, must have a good 
general knowledge of Arithmetic, and some acquaintance with 
English Grammar. Applicants for admission to advanced stand¬ 
ing in either course must furnish satisfactory evidence that 
they have carefully performed the work previously done by 
the class they propose to enter. All students are strongly 
urged to enter upon a regular course; but those who do not 
care to do this may take such studies as seem best adapted to 
their individual needs. 

A definite standard of scholarship is required, and any student 
whose average rank for the year falls below this 
Promotions standard will not be promoted. The rank is ob¬ 
tained from the daily recitations, from monthly 
written examinations, and from oral examinations held during 
the last week of each term. An average rank of at least 
seventy per cent, must be attained in order to secure promotion. 

A report of the standing of each pupil is sent to parent or 
guardian at the close of each term. 

The Academic year closes with appropriate literary exercises 
in which the candidates for graduation participate, 

Graduation followed by the presentation of diplomas by the 

President of the Board of Trustees or by the Prin- ♦ 

cipal of the school. The sermon before the graduating class 
is given the previous Sunday. The Commencement Concert

occurs on the evening of the day of graduation, and the follow¬ 
ing evening a public reception is tendered by the graduates to 
the students and their friends. 

Gould’s Academy was one of the first schools to be approved 
by the New England College Entrance Certificate 
Admission Board, hence its graduates are now admitted to 
to College the following New England colleges on certificate 
of the 'Principal: Williams College, Amherst Col¬ 
lege, Boston University, Brown University, Dartmouth College, 
Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, Tufts College, Wellesley 
College, Wesleyan University, Bowdoin College, Bates College, 
Colby College, and the University of Maine. Students may be 
prepared for any college, and having completed such prepar¬ 
ation, will be recommended to the Freshman Class of the col¬ 
lege they desire to enter. It is believed that, with a curriculum 
approved by the best educators of the State, and with thorough¬ 
ly qualified teachers at the head of its various departments, 
Gould’s Academy can fit its students to compare favorably with 
those of any similar institution in New England. 

The gymnasium is equipped for basket-ball, and is, at pres¬ 
ent, supplied with dumb bells, clubs, wands, military 
Physical sticks, parallel and horizontal bars, chest weights, 
Training flying and traveling rings, etc. Needed apparatus 
will be added from time to time. Systematic gym¬ 
nastic drills are given during the cold weather, when it be¬ 
comes necessary ito discontinue outdoor exercise. Tennis, bas¬ 
ket-ball, base-ball, and other outdoor sports are encouraged 
during the spring and fall terms. The students have an Ath¬ 
letic Association, and the school maintains a good standing in 
general athletics. 

Regular work in declamation and composition writing is con¬ 
ducted throughout the course. Each student shall 
Rhetorical declaim not less than twice each term, except upon 

Work written request of parent or guardian. Such re¬ 

quests are rare, and are not, as a rule, for the best 
interest of the student. Students excused from declamations

by request of parents are not eligible to a class part at gradu¬ 
ation. Class work in elocution, free to the whole school, is 
required of all students throughout the entire course. The 
more advanced students are required to furnish original essays, 
while the younger re-produce from memory, in writing, selec¬ 
tions read to them. A Prize Contest, open to the whole school, 
takes place at the close of the winter term, at which prizes are 
offered for excellence in declamation and recitation. 

Prizes have been awarded as follows during the past year: 

Ladies ’ first prize for excellence in declamation, to 
Frizes Florence H. Mercier. Gentlemen ? s first prize for 
excellence in declamation, to J. Harold Young. 

If a sufficient number desire it, a class in Parliamentary Law 
will be conducted by the Principal during at 
Parliamentary least one term of the year. In this class pupils 
Law are taught, by actual practice, the laws and 

principles of parliamentary usage; they are led, 
by gradual degrees, to take part in impromptu speech-making, 
and, from time to time, conduct debates on current topics. The 
object is to stimulate self-possession, aid facility of thought 
and expression, and teach the manner of conducting a public 
meeting “ decently and in order . 99 

The Academy Library is well supplied with books of refer¬ 
ence, standard works of literature, history and 
Library biography. It contains several hundred volumes, 
nearly all selected with special reference to utility 
in school work. The library is open daily for the consultation 
and withdrawal of books, and access may be had at any time 
to the best encyclopedias, dictionaries and gazeteers as aids to 
study. About one hundred volumes have recently been added 
to the reference library. 

The Reading Room is pleasantly located, adjoining the main 
study-room. It is supplied with daily and weekly 
Reading- newspapers, educational journals, and the standard 

Room monthly magazines and reviews. To stimulate a de¬ 
sire for knowledge of what is going on in the world

around us, tlie students are required as a part of their work in 
English, to write reviews of certain magazines, and once or 
twice a week, a morning is devoted to the discussion of current 
events. 

The Cabinet contains one of the best collections of minerals 
and fossils to be found in any secondary school in 
Cabinet and Maine. These are arranged in cases and cata- 
Laboratory logued, making them a valuable aid in the study 

of Geology and Mineralogy. There are, also, 
chemical and physical apparatus, globes, maps, charts, Yaggy’s 
Anatomical Study, etc. The Complete Crowell Physical Lab¬ 
oratory Cabinet has been added to the equipment of the Lab¬ 
oratory during the past year. 

The Herald is published by the students twice each year, 
and is devoted to the interests of the school in gen- 
Academy eral. Its chief object is to encourage the students 
Herald to literary effort, and to keep the alumni and the 

general public in touch with the school. 

The object of the school government and regulations is the 
foundation of systematic habits of study, good 
Government manners and correct morals. The school must 
and depend largely upon the reason and judgment 

Discipline of its students to promote a high standard of 

manliness and womanliness, hence no pains are 
spared to cultivate a keen sense of propriety and a high and 
clear conception of honor. Only those students who are willing 
to conform to the wishes of their teachers and make their school 
work of first importance are wanted; and those whose work or 
conduct continues unsatisfactory, after due admonition, will be 
dismissed from the school. 

During the daily sessions, students study at the Academy 
under the eye of the Principal. Evening study 
Regulations hours begin at 7.30, and students are expected to 
be in their rooms from that time until the hour 
of retiring. Students are expected to attend church regularly

on the Sabbath, to be punctual and regular in attendance upon 
all the school exercises, and to conduct themselves properly at 
all times. The use of intoxicating liquors, tobacco, profane 
or vulgar language is forbidden. Continuous attendance is 
urged upon all. It is important that every student be present 
the first, and remain until the last day of the term. Parents 
are urgently requested to visit the school and to correspond 
with the teachers relative to their children. 

As a majority of the students who attend Gould’s Academy 
are entitled to have their tuition paid by their 
Expenses respective towns, attention is hereby called to the 
following extract from Chapter 68 of the Public 
Laws of the State of Maine for 3903, entitled, 

An Act for the Better Education of Youth. 

Section i. Any youth who resides with parent or guardian in any town which 
does not support and maintain a free high school giving at least one four years’ course 
properly equipped and teaching such subjects as are taught in secondary schools of 
standard grade in this State may, when he shall be prepared to pursue such four years’ 
course, attend any school in this State which does have such a four years’ course and to 
which he may gain entrance by permission of those having charge thereof, provided said 
youth shall attend a school or schools of standard grade which art approved by the 
State Superintendent of Public Schools. In such case tutiton of such youth, not to ex¬ 
ceed thirty dollars annually for any one youth, shall be paid by the town in which he 
resides as aforesaid, and towns are hereby authorized and required to raise annually as 
other school moneys are raised, a sum sufficient to pay such tuition charges. 

As is seen from the above law, any student in the State of 
Maine, residing in a town which does not maintain a free high 
school of standard grade, may, when he shall be prepared to 
pursue high school studies, attend Gould’s Academy without 
tuition charges. Students from other States, and all other 
students to whom this law does not apply, will be charged tuition 


at the following rates. 

Common English, per term, $7.00 

Higher English, per term, $8.00 

Languages, per term, $8.00 

Tuition, per half term, $4.50 

Elocution, private lessons, per hour, .50 

Elocution, class lessons, free. 


16 


GOULD'S ACADEMY 


Each student is charged 25 cents per term to assist in sup¬ 
porting the Reading-Room and Library. Students taking Book¬ 
keeping are charged the same as for higher English. 

Tuition is due Monday of the sixth week of each term. No 
deduction is made for absence of less than half a term. 

Board in private families costs from $2.75 to $3.25 per week, 
or proportionately less if students go home Friday night and 
return Monday morning. For those who wish to board them¬ 
selves, good rooms can be secured at reasonable rates. 

For further information, or to engage board or rooms, address 
the Principal.

Thoughts by the Way. 


ff Education is not to make us seem greater to the 
world , hut that the world and all life and all eternity 
may seem greater and richer and move beautiful to us” 

v v 

''The most sublime sight in the world is that of a 
young person fighting his way up from the pit of igno¬ 
rance to the sunlit heights of knowledge; fighting against 
poverty and heredity and environment; fighting in the 
teeth of fate; fighting against destiny itself and beating 
it down inch by inch.” 


V> V *7+ 

"Since education makes us better men and women; 
happier , broader , deeper , higher , and finer , and there¬ 
fore capable of doing more good in the world , and capa¬ 
ble of making others better , happier , broader , deeper , 
higher and finer, then it is as much our duty to be edu¬ 
cated as it is to be honest; and no man has any more 
rigid to deprive his children of an education than he has 
to withold from them their daily bread.”
