It prepares its pupils for the University of California, and the Leland Stanford Junior University, to which Institutions any graduate of the School is admitted on the recommendation of the principal. It also gives thorough preparation for any Eastern College admitting women. It is a complete finishing school for those who do not wish to attend elsewhere. Diplomas are given to those who complete any of the courses of the Academy, or those of the Conservatory of Music, for which the School provides a faculty of twenty-three instructors of culture and experience. The School accommodates thirty young ladies as home pupils, giving to them every care and city advantage--opportunity to see and hear all that tends to culture and refinement. The Primary Department, to which boys are admitted, is a model in its way and for the little ones of this Department the School will send its carriage when requested.
