Records for the schools were sporadic, especially in the formative years of both institutions. If instructors kept comprehensive records for the Litchfield Female Academy or the Litchfield Law School, they do not survive.

Art and needlework have provided further identification of Female Academy Students, and Litchfield County Bar records document a number of Law School students.
