Keith Academy - From 1926 to 1970, the Congregation of Francis Xavier operated Keith Academy, an all-male Catholic high school in Lowell, Massachusetts. Many of the school's graduates excelled in later life and today number religious, professional, business, military and political leaders among their ranks. All are proud of their religious heritage and the academic foundation they received at this school. Its memory lives on in the lives of its graduates, who in 2004 held a 7th annual Keith Academy Winter Gathering in Naples, FL., which I attended. This is a picture of our school, followed by a class picture and list of the graduates from my class, 1949.
