- - 1867 - - ST. CLOUD ACADEMY
[Source: The St. Cloud Journal (MN) Dec. 19, 1867, page 3; submitted by Robin Line]
St. Cloud Academy.-A general sense of gratification will be felt to learn, from an advertisement in another column, that an academy will be opened in this city early next month, under charge of Rev. E.V. Campbell. An institution of this kind has been greatly needed; indeed its lack has been felt as one of the most serious drawbacks to the place. It could not appear under more satisfactory auspices that it does. Rev. Mr. Campbell is a thorough scholar, and excellent disciplinarian, and understands thoroughly the management of a first-class school. He undertakes this at the urgent solicitation of many of our citizens, who were much pleased with a few sessions taught by Mr. C. a year or two since. Pupils from abroad can rest assured that better advantages are not easily to be obtained, and we would cordially commend the academy to them. Boarding can be had in private families at reasonable rates.
