Preparatory Studies. A needful advance in the standard for admission to the College courses, and the necessity of providing, temporarily at least, for those who will come from places where no good High Schools exist, have induced the Trustees to provide for preparatory classes in
the Studies lying between the Common School Studies and the College courses.
Candidates for these classes must be at least fifteen years old. They must also pass satisfactory examinations in Arithmetic, Geography, English Grammar, and History of the United States. The examination in these branches should be equal to that usually required for a Second Grade certificate for teachers. This examination may be made by county Superintendents. The Studies taught in the preliminary year are as follows: First Term—Algebra (Olney's), Physiology (Dalton's), BookKeeping. Second Term—Geometry (Olney's), English, Elements of Composition (Swinton's School Composition, or an equivalent), Orthoepy and Word Analysis (Introduction to Webster's Academic Dictionary), and Natural Philosophy (Peck's Ganot). Third Term—Geometry completed ; English (as in Second Term, with the addition of Goldsmith's Traveler, or an equivalent, which is read for analysis), and Botany. For candidates for the Classical Course, the studies will be as follows : First 2'erm—Algebra, Latin (Csesar), Greek (Grammar and Reader). Second Term—Geometry, Latin (Cicero), Greek (Anabasis). Third Term—Geometry, Latin (Virgil), Greek (Anabasis). Students in the preparatory studies will not be matriculated as University Students. They will pay no entrance fee, but will be charged a tuition fee of TEN DOLLAKS a term, and the usual incidental fee of FIVE DOLLARS a term. They will have all the privileges of the library and of the public lectures.
