Miss Peregrine’s College for Girls

Ready to fall apart

Upstate (New York), United States

The College for Girls was founded in 1890 and in 1907 moved to its final home on 22 acres in Upstate, New York. In 1907 the school had an enrollment of 120 students and a faculty of 29. Originally, the course of study was six years with four years of high school and two years of higher study.

However, early on, the school discontinued high school courses and became just a junior college.  The two-year curriculum continued through the 70’s until the school closed in 1978 due to financial distress.  At the time of closing, enrollment was around 300 students.
