This private boarding school was founded by the Presbytery of Athens in 1903. Its campus occupied a large area incorporating the present day SNC campus along with other acreage.
Girls in uniform, as seen in the school assembly photo at the top of this page, were often boarding students.
The standing figure visible at the back of the room in the school assembly picture is Rev. Dr. John Knox Coit, long time President of the Institute.
