Biographical/Historical Note

The North Avenue Presbyterian School (NAPS) began in 1909 with one teacher, Miss Emma Askew, and twenty children. As a part of its curriculum, religious emphasis accompanied instruction in the usual subjects. Following World War II the school developed a college preparatory school. In 1951, NAPS was chartered as a non-sectarian institution and a college preparatory division for boys was added. The name was changed to "The Westminster Schools." A new building for the combined institutions was erected on a large tract of land at Paces Ferry and Howell Mill Roads.
