The Hallowell Classical and Scientific Academy was chartered in 1872 "for the purpose of promoting Christian education, and the more thorough training of the youth in such languages and in such of the arts and sciences as the trustees" should direct. At the date of the will, and until June, 1888, it conducted a school at Hallowell for the education of youth of both sexes, of the grade and scope of high school. It was a boarding as well as day school. Its board of trustees and management, some of them clergymen, were affiliated with the Congregational denomination in this state.
