Chester Institute 1864-1865 Catalogue

Catalogue and Circular of Chester Institute for Young Ladies and Gentlemen, at Chester, Morris County, N. J., 1864-1865.

This Institution was established in 1854, and has uniformly received a liberal patronage. Elevated above the surrounding country, with pure air and commanding views, the location is healthful, pleasant, quiet and desirable. The Institute buildings are large, commodious, and well furnished. The , large and luxuriant trees which overshadow the ample play grounds, render them attractive and beautiful.

All the students attend Bible Class on Sabbath afternoons. While all influences of a sectarian character will be carefully avoided, yet, instruction in the practical duties of Christian life will be faithfully imparted. God and the Bible,, as supreme authority, are and must be kept prominently before the school. Each pupil should be supplied with a Bible and Bible Dictionary.

Students are allowed an unrestricted correspondence with their own families and relatives. It is much better for pupils to enter at the opening of the term, but will be received at any time, and charged from the time of entering ; but no allowance will be made for occasional absences, as either at the opening, close or during term. It is expected that all who enter, will remain at least one term, unless prevented by sickness, or some unforseen providence.

The Male and Female Departments are separate, and the students without communication except at the discretion of the Principal. Students are not allowed to visit the taverns or saloons of the township without permission, nor to use intoxicating drinks, tobacco in any form, profane language, nor indulge in immodest conversation or behavior ; and are expected to avoid all practices opposed to morality and good order.
