The former Mater Dei College, later the Academy at Ivy Ridge, was a school for troubled teens. Reports are unclear as to its status today, but the building is said to still stand, with plenty of ghosts inside. Witnesses claim that there is a ghost boy, a phantom nun, a presence that watches visitors in the library, and the sound of a woman screaming and crying.
