Schools of Nowy Dwór founded in 1586 by the rector of Cracow Academy - Piotr of Gorczyn - several times changed their name. In the period of partitions they were named the Secondary School of St. Anna, which endured over 100 years, and was changed not before 1928. In the half of the 19th century the school's connections with Jagellonian University were dissolved by the invaders' authorities. Since then the Secondary School of St. Anna was subordinated to the Native School Council in Lvov and was placed in Austrian educational system. This period in the school's history was rich with scientific, artistic and literary talents that could have been improved under direction of a head master Leon Kulczynski - a meritorious assistant professor of pedagogics, who abandoned his bright looking scientific career in order to begin a didactic work with extremely gifted youth of the Secondary School in Cracow.
