Desiring a change, and looking for a favorable location, he was induced by a number of leading citizens of this section to establish a school at Union Village, in Coleraine township, as a point where a successful school might be founded.

The site of the present building was then owned by Joseph Cochran, who carried on the harness making business at the Union, and he offered to erect an end to his house for the purpose of a school room, which offer was excepted by Prof. Andrews, and a school was opened August 6th , 1859, with thirty seven Scholars; the family names of nearly all whom are still found among the foremost of the two townships.

The school grew with the success and prosperity of the surrounding country, and was recognized as a great factor in the education of the rising citizens of the Southern end.

For twenty - seven consecutive years, or until 1886, Professor Andrews continued that efficient work as tutor at this school which has left its indelible impression upon the citizens of this section.

Thoroughly educated, a firm disciplinarian, gifted as a teacher he had but few superiors in his profession; despite the fact that from a stroke of paralysis at the age of eighteen he entirely lost the use of his lower limbs.

The first principal under the new management was H. A. Foresman, A. M., a graduate of Princeton, then residing in NY., who opened school September 10th, 1889, operating the school with marked success for three years He then retired from teaching to engage in the publishing business in Chicago, Ill.

Arthur Collins, A.B., took the school in the fall of 1891, but only taught one term.

J. L. Hynson, A. B. , graduate of Dickinson College, resident of Chestertown, Maryland, took charge and conducted the school successfully for two years. He is now studying for the ministry, at Princeton.

In the fall of 1894, the trustees determined to put the school on a firmer and more permanent basis, they decided to furnish text books at a rental, have two teachers, give special training preparatory for college, and organize a special class for the training of teachers. To this end C. K. Binkley, A. M. , a graduate of the scientific class of Millersville, and a teacher of considerable experience, assisted by Miss Alice R. Byrnes, a graduate of the same institution, leased the school.
