POUGHKEEPSIE COLLEGIATE SCHOOL.

A BOARDING SCHOOL FOR BOYS OF ALL AGES.

This school was established in 1836. From that time to this there has been but one change in the principalship,—which occurred
after the death of the late principal, Charles Bartlett. It has always enjoyed a liberal patronage, drawn from all sections.

The principals and their families, the teachers and pupils, all reside in one building and eat at the same table. _ The pupils are

wash-stand with bowl and pitcher to each pupil.

A FIRST CLASS SCHOOL.
