Description: 

The "Academy" is the Jefferson institution of higher education for women that Linda Snopes attends for a year and a half after graduating from high school. Gavin Stevens calls it an "anachronistic vacuum" (303): "one of the last of those gentle and stubbornly fading anachronisms called Miss So-and-So's or The So-and-So Female Academy or Institute whose curriculum included deportment and china-painting, which continue to dot the South though the rest of the United States knows them no more" (300).
