The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 50
Pupils are admitted to the Fifth Academic Class at the age of eleven years provided they can pass a satisfactory examination in Reading. Spelling, Writing, Geography and elementary Arithmetic. Those not qualified for this class are received in the Preparatory Class, and provided with a separate room and special instructor. No pupils will be received for less than one term, and no abatement in tuition will be made for absence, whether such absence occur at the beginning, middle or end of the term. Every absence, however brief, from the regular exercises, should be regarded as an infringement upon the good order of the school, and a serious hindrance to individual progress. The course of instruction in this department extends through six years, and includes those studies which are preparatory to the College and the Polytechnic School of the University.
