Culver Academies Culver Military Academy

Culver Educational Foundation  

I have been called for using the term "Culver Militay Acadmey" for histiorical significance it should remain and the terms of Culver Military Academy, Culver Educational Foundation, Culver Academies should be used as justified in the appropriate time period for them - I was told that "When it is listed as Culver Military Academy, it leaves out Culver Girls Academy and the Culver Summer Schools and Camps." which in my mind does not - as for years until the Culver Girls Academy was found the winter and summer programs all were ran under the name of "Culver Military Acadmey" which is proven in their many ads that are found in many publications over the years. "Culver Educational Foundation' if found on most all of the signs thus in reality it is the term that should be used -

Just when the term "Culver Academies" came in will have to be determined - even into the early years of the 'Culver Girls Academy" the military had not been dropped out of the name - the "Culver Educational Foundation" came into being in the late 1920's and yet "Culver Miltiary Acadmey" was use for both the winter and summer prgrams for years afterwards by their commerical ads and their catalogs. -

Even to the Facebook page reads "About Culver Military Academy" Culver Academies is a group of elite college preparatory boarding schools and summer camps in the United States Academies is composed of three entities: Culver Military Academy (CMA) for boys, Culver Girls Academy (CGA), and the Culver Summer Schools and Camps (CSSC). They are collectively known as the Culver Academies and are located in Culver Indiana

Dropping ther terms of Culver Military Academy, Culver Educational Foundation in the correct historical eras , time periods etc. is not "historically correct' to do so.
