ST. LOUIS
English and Classical
HIGH SCHOOL.

THIS SCHOOL, now in the third year of its operation, with confidence invites the attention of the community to its claims upon them for a continuance of the liberal patronage it has already received.

It must be apparent to every one who, from the commencement, has watched its growing progress, that the improvements gradually introduced into it are such as carry with them the idea of a permanent and well-established order of instruction. In its internal arrangement, the selection of Teachers, the choice of text books, the classification of pupils, the character of its discipline, and the facilities for instruction, direct reference is had not so much to an immediate and ostensible effect, as to the ultimate influence upon the moral and intellectual condition of its students, when they shall withdraw from its guardian influence and assume the practical responsibilities of life.

The public may be assured that the fidelity which they have already so generously accredited to the government and instruction of this Institution, shall in no respect be abated. Improvement shall be our undeviating aim; and no success, however flattering, shall induce in us an insensibility of the high and responsible trust confided to our hands.

The rates of tuition are as moderate as the liberal provisions of the School will allow. For these and other general statistics, reference may be made to the annual catalogues, or to

EDWARD WYMAN, Principal.
