Description: 

The "Academy" in Jefferson is "a prep school," which distinguishes it from the public high school (205). In other fictions it is specifically referred to as the "Female Academy." In this story, however, it is co-educational. Mrs. Harriss attended "the female half of the Academy" for "three or four years," along with Charles Mallison's mother and several other girls "who had been the nearest thing she had to friends" (152), but a generation later it is where Charles himself goes, and where he is the "cadet lieutenant colonel" of the R.O.T.C. program - the Reserve Officer Training Corps (205).
