Weeping Water Academy was established in 1885 as a Congregational Church School in Weeping Water, Cass County, Nebraska.  The Rev. George Hindley was instrumental in founding the institution, and was its first principal.  The first graduating class of six students graduated from the Academy in 1888.  Between 1885 and 1914, when the Academy closed its doors, 218 students graduated from the institution, and some 1,500 others had taken some course of work.
