St. Dunstan's College

Charlottetown Royalty

Under the Patronage of the Right Rev. Dr. McIntyre, Bishop of Charlottetown

THIS Institution is beautifully situated on an elevated site about a mile north of Charlottetown, and its location is one of the healthiest in America. The grounds are spacious and afford ample room for such plays as football and cricket.

The discipline is strict though mild and parental. No boy of light or unruly manners will be retained in the establishment. The greatest attention is paid to the intellectual and moral culture of the pupils who are always under the watchful care and government of their Professors and Tutors and form but one family with them.

Arrangements have been made for the reception of day scholars.

The course of studies is solid and extensive, embracing the English, French, Latin and Greek Languages; Religious Instruction, Rhetoric, Elocution, History and Geography; a complete course of Mathematics, Chemistry, Natural, Intellectual and Moral Philosophy.

There is in the College a Library containing nearly three thousand volumes of the choicest English, French, Latin and Greek works. Also a splendid Philosophical Apparatus.

The collegiate year begins on the FIRST WEDNESDAY of September and ends about the middle of July.

Should a Student leave before the end of a quarter, no deduction will be made except in case of sickness.
