TitleChristian Brothers Academy
DescriptionFrom text: "The Academy of the Christian Brothers, on Van Buren street, near Clark, was first opened in the spring of 1868, and has already achieved a very high and deserved celebrity. In the Order of the Christian Brothers, founded for the purpose of devoting themselves to the education of youth, the members are trained especially to fulfill the duties of teachers. How well they perform the onerous duties of their calling, is attested by the great success and popularity of their schools in Europe, and of late years in this country. Students of all denominations are received, and the religious opinions of the parents respected and never interfered with in the child."
