St. Mary's Academy and College is a Traditional Catholic School. It was originally a mission founded in 1848 that provided schooling for the Potawatomi Indians. The Oregon Trail passed right thru the area and the mission offered mass, rest and change of horses before the travelers took off across the prairie. Today this is a liberal arts college promoting the possibility of a religious vocation.
