Episcopal Academy of Connecticut 

This school was founded at Cheshire, Connecticut, in 1794 to "serve the double purpose of a preparatory school and a university." Sometimes it was referred to as "Seabury University." The academy opened in 1796 and admitted boys and girls until 1836, when it became a boys' school. It never developed into a college. It closed in 1917.
