The former St. Joseph Academy was purchased in 1934 from the Dominican Sisters whose motherhouse was in Cuba. It was primarily a college prep high school for girls of Orange County and a boarding school for girls of other localities. A limited number were accepted for grade school; this discontinued in 1949. Expansion of enrollment led to a new location at Nohl Ranch in Orange County and was dedicated on Dec. 5, 1964. The school also attracted international students from nine countries. Marywood was closed in 1980.
