Each of these officers maintained records in the course of their respective duties until the Academy and secondary school were finally closed and all activities ceased by 1975.

They include account books known by their French name comptes-rendus, student registers, receipts and expenses, boarders' accounts, commercial accounts, day scholar accounts, payroll ledgers, council minutes, names and addresses of students, alumni records, and other miscellaneous material.
