Spotlight: City of Schools

Poughkeepsie was known as the City of Schools well before the 1865 opening of Vassar College. One of the earliest named streets in Poughkeepsie is Academy Street, so-named because the Dutchess Academy was there. DCHS is grateful to Poughkeepsie Public Library District for supporting DCHS through their sponsorship of a DCHS Curated Topic. This page will be continually updated with information related to this topic. ~ Bill Jeffway, DCHS Executive Director.
