1852-1920

Fondue avant l'avènement de l'education publique en
Nouvelle-Écosse, cette école a offert une éducation classique
et morale aux fils de familles aisées des Maritimes. L'école
accueillait quelques externes, mais la plupart des élèves
étaient pensionnaires. Les filles ont été admises à partir de
1905. Pendant un
siècle, les diplômés de l'école Acacia Villa
sont devenus des chefs de file dans la vie publique et dans
toutes les professions. En 1959, l'ouragan Edna a détruit le
bâtiment principal. Deux des diplômés de renom sont sir
Frederick Borden de Canning, ministre de la Défense et de
la Milice de 1896 à 1911 et son cousin sir Robert Borden de
Grand Pré, premier ministre du Canada de 1911 à 1921.

Founded well before the advent of public education in
Nova Scotia, this school provided a classical and moral
education for the sons of well-to-do Maritimers. A few day
pupils attended, but most were boarders. From 1905 on,
girls were admitted. For a century Acacia Villa graduates
were leaders in public life and in every profession. The
main building stood until 1959, when it was blown down
in Hurricane Edna. Two local graduates of note were Sir
Frederick Borden of Canning, Minister of Defence and
Militia from 1896 to 1911, and his cousin, Sir Robert Borden
of Grand Pré, Prime Minister of Canada from 1911



to 1921.
