Alma College Lives in our Memories…
Alma College was a private girls’ boarding school built in 1878. This landmark Gothic Revival style building was located at 96 Moore St. in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada. It opened in 1881 as a liberal arts college for young women, offering courses in literature, arts, business and music.
The school ceased operations in 1988, and closed formally in 1994. Unfortunately, the main building was destroyed by a fire on May 28, 2008.
This online community was created to preserve something of this important place.
Alumnae who attended the college have told their memorable stories about living and studying at school, in hopes that you will read and enjoy them here.
In this way, Alma will live on…
