HUNGERFORD COLLEGIATE INSTITUTE
Adams, Jefferson County, N.Y.
Rev. J. Dunbar Houghton, A.M., Principal, assisted by twelve competent
Instructors, six male and six female.
This institute is a Day and Boarding School for young men and young women. It is located in one of the most beautiful, healthy and enterprising villages in the State, and in a highly intelligent and moral community. It is, also, easy of access, being directly on the line of the rome, Watertwon and Ogdensburgh Railroad.The building is new and spacious, and has been fitted up in the best manner. The Course of Instruction embraces Latin, Greek, French and German; Elementary English Studies; Higher Mathematics, including Surveying, plain, trigonometrical, and topographical, with field practice; the Natural Sciences, with lectures, illustrations and experiments; Belles-Lettres; Book-Keeping, in all its varieties; Telegraphy, with practical Telegraphing; Vocal and Instrumental Music, embracing the organ, piano and melodeon; Drawing and Painting; Calisthenics and Infantry Drill.
Rev. J.D. Houghton, the Principal, was for thirteen years the Principal of Union Academy, and for several years previous was engaged as instructor in one of the best institutions in the country, and, during the entire period, klhe hs, as a thorough instructor and disciplinarian, been eminently sucessful.
The other members of the corps of instructors and lecturers have also had large experience and success, affording the best advantages in every department and study, and such as si confidently believed will satisfy every reasonable expectation.
The method of instruction is one of rigid analysis and demonstration. The pupil is not expected to do the work of the teacher, nor the teacher that of the pupil. The pupil is expected and required to study and learn so much as possible from the text book, and the teacher is expected to explain and illustrate, by means of drawings and apparatus, and in accordance with the improved system of modern school teaching, giving such suggestions as to the manner of studying, the process of investigation, and the application of principles, as to insture the greatest proficiency and mental growth. Thoroughnbess and permanent advantage, instead of pretension and display, is the motto in every department. The school has just closed its third year, and has been throughout a perfect success. Its discipline and good order have been marked features, and elicited the admiration of visitors from week to week, and committees from term to term, not less than the strict analytical method of instruction and thorough scholarship attained.
The price of Tuition and Board, will be about the same as at other
For further information, address the Principal, or the undersigned.
