French and English seminary for Young Ladies, corner
of E and 9th streets, Washington city.
THE location of thia seminary is one of the most
desirable in the city, on account of its healthy
and airy position. The house is large and commodious,
with ample grounds and other facilities for
amusement and recreation. The principal, so well
and favorably known in this city, and in New
York, from her long experience in teaching, hopes
to give entire satisfaction to all who may conflde
their daughters to her care. She is a native of
France, and familiar with its language and literature,
and conversant with the best and easiest modes
of imparting to her pupils a perfect knowledge of
that language, so that tney can not only read and
write, but speak it fluently. She has secured able
asristarils for various departments, so that all.
branches of an English as well as French education
will be thoroughly taught. Pupils who reside in
the family have the peculiar advantages of hearing,
and conversing at all times in the French language,
and of perfecting themselves in the science of music,
being under the surveillance of aa experienced
teacher. The course of instruction, besides the
usual elementary branches, includes all the higher
studies pursued in the most approved northern sem
imiries. I he discipline is mild and affectionate, yet
decided, and ia maintained by appeals to the a flections
and conscience of the pupil; it is designed, by a
proper development and cultivation of the better
qualities of the heart, to bind more affectionately the
pupil to her teacher, and by it to secure obedience.
As sound physical, moral, and intellectual improvement
and culture, are the great objects desired, it is
the aim of the principal not so much to crowd the
memory with words, as to draw forth and train the
systematic and vigorous action, ths observing, reflecting,
and active powers of the mind. The
charges to those who reside in the family are, for
board and tuition in all the branches of French and
English, $200 per annum for a single pupil; but
when two or more are entered at the same time, a
liberal deduction will be made. The additional
charges per (quarter are for music, piano, and guitar,
$15; use of instrument, $2 50; vocal music, $5. To
day scholars, the charges for tuition in tne first
department in French or English, are $10;
together, $15; in the second department first
class French or English, $8; together, $12; in
the second class French or English $7; together
$10; in the third department, first class, Krench
or English , #6; together #9; in the second
class, French or English $5; together $8; Latin $4,
other languages, drawing, painting, and dancing;
at professor's charges. Pupils can be entered at any
time, and will be charged only from the date of their
entrance. No deduction will be made to those who
absent themselves after commencing a quarter, unless
prevented from attending by sickness. Bills in
all cases to be paid in advance. Every attention is
paid to the religious as well as moral and tntellectual
instructions of the pupils, but no sectarian peculiarities
are ever inculcated. Those residing in the family
will attend such churches as their parents may
select, under the care of a teacher. Tney will attend
the Episcopal church with the Principal, when
no other directions are given. Any other information,
and the most satisfactory references will be
given on application to the principal.
