Culver Academies

Culver, Indiana, USA

The Culver Academies are independent college preparatory boarding schools comprised of Culver Military Academy and Culver Girls Academy. Henry Harrison Culver founded Culver Military Academy in 1894 "for the purpose of thoroughly preparing young men for the best colleges, scientific schools and businesses of America." In 1896, a fire at Missouri Military Academy brought about its consolidation with Culver, and with it came Missouri's headmaster, Col. Alexander Fleet, under whose guidance the Academy made rapid progress. By 1939, under the leadership of Gen. Leigh Gignilliat, Culver had achieved national and international prominence. Steady growth has continued throughout Culver's history. Culver Girls Academy was founded in 1971, for the purpose of encouraging young women to attain the highest degree of self-development. The Culver Academies are more than an outstanding college preparatory school for boys and girls in an ideal setting, with unparalleled facilities, and one of the most extensive academic and activity offerings available at the high-school level - not to mention one of the finest athletic programs in the country. With a focus on leadership training, Culver prepares you for college and the greater world beyond by encouraging you to develop your unique interests and talents, while helping you to move beyond self-imposed limitations....
