Long Description:
The Lutheran Normal School opened in 1889 with the purpose of educating teachers. In 1918, synod officials felt that having two institutions so close together was not fiscally prudent, and decided to merge the Lutheran Normal School and Augustana College in Sioux Falls under the name Augustana College. After the merger, the school site in Canton became the Augustana Academy. Despite the similarities in name, it was no longer affiliated with the college.
