     The Theresianum is a private boarding school in Vienna's 4th District. The Favorita was the imperial summer residence of the Habsburgs. In 1746 the Empress Maria Theresa sold it to the Jesuits with the stipulation that a school, the Collegium Theresianum, be opened for the training of civil servants. Franz Josef put the school under state control and opened it to the wealthier upper middle class.
