Ladycliff, a Catholic residential College for women, was founded in 1933 by the Franciscan Sisters of Peekskill. The College was located in Highland Falls, NY, on the west bank of the Hudson River about 50 miles north of New York City on property adjacent to the United States Military Academy at West Point. A vibrant, interactive College by the 1970s, Ladycliff was forced to close in 1980 for financial reasons. Two thousand six hundred sixty-one women graduated from Ladycliff. An additional three thousand students enrolled as non-matriculated students through the years.
