ine plans far a tn-city summer
school, which have for same months been
carefully considered and discussed by
persons warmly interested in educational
affairs, bave now become sufficiently defl
nite and assured to merit the attention of
every member of the community who
may be interested in the question of pro
fit and progress, either from an aesthetic
or commercial point of view. The
school is now an assured thing, with an
academy department offering instruction
in several popular and practical fields of
study, and there are strong probabilities
of an accorapaning school of methods, to
be directed by some of our ablest and
most distinguished educators. The
school will be unique, among summer
schools, as offering a standard of thor
ough excellence throughout, and being
able to challenge critical observation of
each and every department and class. In
fact, its founders are working for a per
manency, and in tbe belief that enduring
success can be built up only on absolute
excellence. For the coming season, to
open early in July, the following depart
ments are assured, each subdividing into
several classes, c ire fully graded:
The department of, art, under the di
rection of two teachers, will offer the
several grades of work from the advanced
studies of the "Life Class" to primary
work in black and white.
The studio will be fully and finely
equipped, with an ample line of casts,
materials for ' 'still life," studies, etc.
The department of French will be direct
ed by a teacher having fluent command
or the language, and will give daily class
work, for each grade in both analytical
and natural methods. The department
of vocal culture will also give class in
struction of fine quality and approved
methods, with particular attention to tbe
mportant point of sight reading. To the
departments mentioned, now absolutely
assured, and offering advantages of the
highest order, thers will be added, also,
German, Greek and Latin, elocution and
physical culture, and a science course,
popular in tone and of practical value.
The plan has been cordially endorsed
by all of our leading educators, to
whose notice it has been brousrht.
