The academy was opened on October 1, 1889 with 70 resident students and 50 cadets. The annual fee of $750 covered tuition, room and board. Some of the academic courses at the school were instructed by United States Army officers.
In 1896, the Utah State Industrial School (later renamed Youth Development Center) took over the site until 1984, when Ogden–Weber Applied Technology College moved its campus to this location. The collected records of the academy from September 1890 to 1893 were transferred from the archives of Brigham Young University to the Stewart Library at Weber State University.
