History of Immaculata and Dunblane

In 1905, at the request of the pastor of St. Ann Church in Washington, D.C., the Sisters of Providence bought property and opened what was first called Immaculata Seminary, including elementary, secondary and postgraduate programs.

In 1913, the elementary school moved to Dunblane at the west end of the campus. In 1920, the postgraduate department became a junior college. In 1955, a separate building was built for college dormitory and classrooms. Two other buildings were built for common use.

For financial reasons the junior college closed in 1978. In 1986, the Sisters of Providence contingency plan resulted in the closing of the elementary and high schools. The property was sold to American University, where it remains today.

Until 1965, the high school was called Immaculata Preparatory School. In 1965, the name was changed to Immaculata High School.

Welcome alumnae, former students and family of Immaculata Seminary, Immaculata High School, Immaculata Preparatory School, Immaculata Junior College, Immaculata College and Dunblane School of Washington, D.C.
