Although the current building was built in 1972, Poland Seminary High School owes its name to an earlier institution, Poland Seminary, which was one of the first private colleges to admit women. In the early 1900s, the institution was deeded to The Poland Schools for $1.00 with the stipulation that it forever be called "Poland Seminary".[2] This former institution matriculated US President William McKinley,[3] and the present high school claims McKinley as an alumnus.[2]
