Can I get a transcript of my grades from the Academy?
Believe it or not...yes, you can. Sr. Mary Seghers, the Archivist of the Community, has old records from the Academy. Several women have had to have them when returning to school. The fee for a transctipt is $10. Please call Sr. Mary at 317-787-3287.
Is it possible to come and walk through the Academy building and the grounds?
We always welcome former students of the Academy. You are more than welcome to come and see the old Academy and walk the beautiful grounds. It may behoove you to call the Benedict Inn 317-788-7581 to make sure there aren't groups in the building that may impede your visit.
Are any of my former teachers still alive?
Yes, this was actually a quesiton posed not too long ago. Although we do not know abaout the lay teachers, we are very sure of the sistrs who taught at the Academy. Some have been called home, while others still occupy their earthly home. Several made the decision to change their vocation and ventured on different avenues. If you go to the "Where are they now?" page, you can see the sisters who were at the Academy and where they are now!
Can I purchase old yearbooks?
Unfortunately we do not have any old yearbooks to purchase. If you know of someone who no longer want their yearbooks we would gladly take them off their hands so we can hold them back in case we get any requests.
