Historical note

According to former University Archivist Howard Williams, a grammar school gradually developed as the program of instruction at Hamilton Literary and Theological Institution expanded in the early nineteenth century. In 1846 it became one of three departments of Madison University, the other two being the collegiate and seminary. In 1873-1874 the preparatory school officially became known as Colgate Academy, began operating more independently, and moved into its own building, built with funds from a gift from James B. Colgate. The school closed in 1912.
