Academy of the Assumption
|Academy of the Assumption|
Old Assumption Chapel, now St. Jude Melkite Catholic Church built in 1946 of Indiana Bedford stone
|Funding type||Private school|
|Principal||Therese Margaret Duross|
Built in 1943 and closed in 1976, it was run by the Religious of the Assumption. The school's last principal was Sr. Therese Margaret Duross R.A. After being closed, the facilities were sold. Most buildings have since been demolished, replaced by luxury high-rise condominiums that dot the area's skyline. However, some buildings are still standing and in use. The Assumption Chapel remains active, now a part of St. Jude Melkite Catholic Church.
