BREVARD INSTITUTE is the outgrowth of the Brevard
Epworth School, founded in 1895 by Rev. Fitch Taylor, and aided
by the Leagues and. Sunday Schools of the Western North Caro-
lina Conference of the M. E. Church, South. The school and the
conference suffered a great loss when Mr. Taylor died in Bre-
vard, March 16, 1909. His life was a benediction to all who
Due to the lack of sufficient financial support, Mr. Taylor ran
his school under disadvantages. The enterprise was finally sus-
pended and remained dormant for two years. The Board of
Trustees at last offered to finish and furnish the school building
and to turn the property over to the Woman's Home Mission So-
ciety of the same Church. The proposal was accepted, and the
enterprise passed into the hands of the women in June, 1903, E.
E. Bishop being made principal. On October 20th, the school
was opened with an enrollment of fifty students, two of whom
were boarders. The house was enlarged the second year to
accommodate increased patronage, and the school grew steadily
year by year.
In 1907, the Woman's Board needed the services of Mr.
Bishop to develop their Vashti Home. Mr. C. H. Trowbridge was
elected to take his place, and served faithfully and efficiently
until 1923, when he resigned and was elected President of
Weaver College. His successor, Mr. O. H. Orr, accomplished
much during the next four years in the way of placing the school
upon a secure basis, both financially and educationally; he re-
signed in 1927 to become cashier of the Pisgah Bank of Brevard.

The list of scholarships available to worthy students of the
Institute has been increased this year by two. The Woman's
Missionary Society of First Church at Charlotte has established
the Marr Memorial Scholarship, a full scholarship and assignable
by the society. The Woman's Missionary Society at Dalton, Ga.,
has established the Laura Denton Scholarship, in honor of the
memory of Miss Laura Denton, and to be used for the help of
some worthy North Georgia girl.
In addition to these regular scholarships, there have been
other notable contributions. The Mary and Martha Sunday
School class of Dilworth church, Charlotte, has undertaken the
work of helping a student in whatever extent is deemed neces-
sary. The year just past this help amounted to one hundred
The Mary Pescud Auxiliary of the Edenton Street church at
Raleigh has contributed $100 to our loan fund, honoring the
memory of Miss Mary Pescud, many years a missionary in Brazil.
The Thomasville, N. C, Auxiliary has continued their an-
nual scholarship in the amount of $50.00.
The P. H. Hanes endowed scholarship has been re-awarded
again for next year, to Mr. W. Guthrie, who was the beneficiary
of this award during the year just past. This scholarship was
donated last year by Mrs. S. Douglas Craig of Winston-Salem,
in honor of her father, P. H. Hanes. It is administered through
the North Carolina Division of the U. D. C, and represents an
investment of $3000, yielding approximately $130 annually. It
is awarded each year to the descendant of a Confederate Vet-
eran, chosen by the Educational Committee of the U. D. C, of
which Mrs. J. S. Welborn of High Point is chairman.
Miscellaneous donations for the year have been directed to
the re-equipping of our departments of Domestic and Manual
arts. The result is that these departments are again on a work-
ab 1 ^ basis, with the necessary equipment for efficient procedure.
The ladies of the New Bern district of the North Carolina Con-
ference Societv have pledged furniture fov our demonstration
din'nq; room which we expect to have furnished by the open'ng
of the fall term.
WINNERS OF MEDALS, 1929
The winner of the R. Y. Neel Medal this year was Mr. Ar-
thur Campbell of Montreat, N. C. This medal is donated an-
'nually by Mr. R. Y. Neel, formerly a member of the Institute
faculty, now of Johnson City, Tenn., and is awarded to the win-
ner of the annual contest in declamation.
The Mabel Jetton Medal was won by Miss Alice Bol'n of
Hendersonville. This medal is given by Miss Mabel Jetton, a^o
a former teacher, but who is now in foreign work at Santa

tation. These contests are a regular and popular feature of our
The first award of the Ralph H. Zachary medal was to Mr.
Carl Drumeiler of Montgomery, Alabama. This medal is to be
given annually by the Zachary brothers, Jack and Ralph H. Jr.,
in honor of their father. It is awarded to the student in the In-
stitute who makes the highest average in mathematics. The
elder Mr. Zachary, for many years a resident of Brevard and
always a friend and patron of the Institute, was himself a
mathematician of considerable repute, and we feel sure that
these young- men in addition to honoring their father, are there-
by contributing in no mean way to the promotion of interest in
a science that he loved.
ANNUAL SOCIETY CONTEST IN ATHLETICS
AND FIELD EVENTS
The annual Field day and Literary contest between the two
groups of brother and sister Literary Societies suffered last
year from the epidemic of influenza and other untoward circum-
stances. The event is scheduled to be held in November thi?
year, and the traditional enthusiasm and spirit of rivalry is ey
pected to be in evidence.
Especial attention is called to the arrangement and wide
variety in Science courses offered. Most high schools, with an
enrollment of 200 or less, employ only one science teacher. By
combining Sciences with the related fields of Manual Arts and
Home Economics, we are able to offer practically every high
school science. Moreover, each science course is provided with
two extra laboratory periods per week, which are required to
give a full unit of credit on the course instead of only the half-
unit credit allowed for five recitation periods per week. The
schedule is so arranged as to avoid conflicts, if the student's
work is not scattered over several grades.
We recommend that you study the "Program of Studies" and
the schedule, and have in mind the work you wish to take when
you come to enroll. Keep your course as nearly regular accord-
ing to grades as possible. Bring or send record of previous work,
and if there are changes necessary, we will recommend them
when you enroll.
10 BREVARD INSTITUTE
®ft? Purpose of ilje Srijmil
The purpose of Brevard Institute is clear cut. We endeavor
to give educational advantages second to no school in our class,
but at much less than the usual and actual cost. This is made
possible by reason of the support we receive from the Missionary
Council, enabling us to care for many boys and girls who would
otherwise be unable to pay for such advantages.
For this reason we cannot dissipate our efforts upon those
who are not worthy of such benefits. We positively do not ac-
cept pupils of bad habits or character, and parents sending such
in the hope that we may reform them are laying themselves
liable to the humiliation of having them dismissed. An incor-
rigible boy or girl exerts a demoralizing influence on the entire
group. Neither can we take those in poor health. Our mission
is to that large and most respectable and sensible group who,
though unable to pay the usual expenses of boarding school, are
nevertheless eager for the advantages of an education and
for the inspiration of the environment found in the cultured
atmosphere of a Christian school, an inspiration emanating
largely from daily life and contacts such as the public school
We cater especially to the following classes:
1. Those who may not see their way clear to go to college,
and who desire brief technical and vocational courses as a prep-
aration for life.
2. Those who do not have adequate educational advantages
3. Those who are especially interested in training themselves
for distinctively Christian leadership and service. The Church
is spending much money at Brevard, and the school is in return
trying to do the distinctive work of the Church in this line. Our
Bible courses and the influence we strive to exert are directed
to the double purpose of furnishing such training to those who
desire it, and of creating the desire in those who have it not.
We especially strive to impress the fact that the spirit of true
democracy inheres in the genuine sort of Christianity, while
prudishness and snobbery have no part in it. No one is excused
from enrollment in one of the Bible classes.
4. Those who for reasons, grounded perhaps in no fault of
their own, are at disadvantage for lack of opportunity, and are
anxious to help themselves. Our plan makes it possible for
about twenty such boys and girls to pay their entire expenses
each year by their own work, provided they are thoroughly in-
dustrious and reliable.
Inasmuch as we are not able to take care of all such appli-
cations, opportunity is given many societies, churches, and even
BREVARD INSTITUTE 11
individuals to take advantage of our exceedingly low rates in
helping some worthy boy or girl of their community to prepare
for a life of usefulness and honor.
OWNERSHIP AND GOVERNING POLICY
Brevard Institute is owned and operated by the Woman's
Missionary Council of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. It
has also received large benefactions from the Western North
Carolina Conference of the same Church, and feels keenly its
responsibility to both organizations. It feels that the church
universal has the right to expect returns in the form of Chris-
tian young people with at least some degree of training for ag-
gressive church work. Consequently it makes Bible study a part
of its regular course of study, and encourages practice in many
forms of Christian leadership. This includes Epworth League
work, Sunday School work, leading prayer meetings, appreciation
of Sacred music, etc. At the same time it impresses constantly
upon all students that these activities fire in themselves only
external, and that real Christianity manifests itself in consistent
living, in straightforwardness, and in unselfish service. Our re-
ligious instruction is non-sectarian.
Brevard, North Carolina, is in the famous health region near
Asheville, and is called, "Th-^ Gate to the Sapphire Country."
The Institute occupies one hundred and eight acres of land in
and adjoining the corporate limits of the town. On this prop-
erty are Spencer Hall, containing accommodations for the lit-
erary and vocational departments; Taylor Hall, which is the new
and modern dormitory for g'r's; the old dormitory, containing
accommodations for the dining hall and kitchen, infirmary,
laundry, and piano practice rooms; Fannie Ross Hell, a dormi-
tory for boys; Manual Training budding, four cottages, and a
large barn. All the large bui'dings are steam heated, and the
ent're plant is lighted by electricity, and connected with the city
sewer and water systems.
Keeping in mind the pedagogical fact that education shou'd
train the entire being, and not the intellect only, Brevard Inst'-
tute stud°n J s are encouraged to participate in literary society
work, in athletics, and to take part in mountani climbs, to use lib-
erally the library and reading table, and attend th° lyceum com*"' 1 .
Grafonola lectures to train musical taste are given frequents.
A good moving picture machine was installed in 1921, and it is
frequently us~d. A Rarl'o with a loud sneaker was instaPed in
San Ang-^o Chapel in March. 1924. Students meet occasionally
in receptions and parties, supervised by teachers.
There are four literary societies, the Adelphian, th^ Lame",
the Taylor, and the Ross. Each student 's expected +o become ^
member of one of tlnse societies, as a considerable part of
school life is connected with them. Each society will be expected
12 BREVARD INSTITUTE
to give, at least once each term, a program which will be open
to the public.
For outdoor sports, the students play basket ball, baseball,
tennis, etc. Occasionally hikes are taken to some of the nearby
waterfalls or mountain peaks.
LIBRARY AND READING TABLE
The library consists of about twenty-four hundred volumes.
It contains several reference works, among them being the Stand-
ard Dictionary; Bible Dictionary and Encyclopedia; such en-
cyclopedias as Hill, Johnson, the Brittanica, Househeld Econom-
ics, and the Nelson Loose-Leaf; also Ridpath's History of the
World, and about two thousand volumes of our choicest standard
The reading table contains several of our best weekly and
monthly periodicals, such as Delineator, Youth's Companion,
Christian Herald, Ladies Home Journal, Literary Digest, Century,
Review of Reviews, Forum, Good Housekeeping, American,
Atlantic Monthly and others.
The schedule of fees is found on page 15. All boarding
students are required to pay the matriculation fee of $2. .00 upon
application for entrance. If the application, for any satisfac-
tory reason, is withdrawn prior to August 15, 1929, the matricu-
lation fee will be returned. Tuition, according to the schedule,
is payable each term in advance, and laboratory fees upon en-
rollment for the course. The campus fee, payable at registration,
covers the cost of medical attention for ordinary sickness, in-
cluding services of the school physician; light, fuel, culture
course, membership in the athletic association, and inc ; dental
and library fees. The breakage deposit is due at registration
and if exhausted must be renewed. Any unused portion will be
returned at the time of departure.
Day students pay matriculation fee, tuition, and incidental
and library fee at registration.
(See also Industrial System).
It has been the custom in the past for the school to furnish
linens, but this costs heavily in proportion to the value of the
service rendered. Few students will feel the burden of supply-
ing their own linens; therefore this custom is to be dispensed
with. For the year 1929-30, however, we will continue to fur-
nish pillow cases and towels, having a supply of these on hand.
We will not furnish sheets, and each student should brine: four,
full length, three-quarter width. Our beds are single beds. All
linens should be plainly and indelibly marked with student's
name, and the linen passes weekly through the hands of the laun-
dry supervisor who checks it. This insures a fresh, clean supply
weekly, a necessity in the interests of sanitation.
BREVARD INSTITUTE 13
All necessary schooi expenses, except for books and supplies,
amount to approximately $237 in the literary courses. Itemized
they are as follows:
Board (nine months) $180
Tuition (the year) 36
Campus fee (the year) 10
Matriculation fee 2
Laundry (nine months) 9
This figure makes no allowance for work. As far as is pos-
sible all the work about the buildings and grounds is done by
students under the direction of the various supervisors. This
work provides about twenty work scholarships and an additional
number of partial scholarships, which are assigned each year to
those whom we know to be worthy and reliable, and really in
need of help. Very often applications for such work are made
by those who are ambitious to help themselves but who do not
really depend upon such help for their education. Such ambition
is laudable, but it would not be fair to deprive some worthy
orphan boy or girl of his chance in life under such circum-
stances. Owing to the large number of applications received it
is generally found necessary to reserve the best places for boys
and girls who have proved their industry find their worth in their
residence on the campus. For this reason it is suggested that
every student coming to us for the first time, make every effort
to secure enough backing in his home community to enable him
to pay his way for at least half the first vear. In this time he
can prove his worth and make himself a place in the school com-
Brevard Institute does, however, endeavor to provide a cer-
tain amount of work for every boy and girl who really wishes to
Work. We do not compel those who are lazy and indolent to
work, for the rest of us are too busy to spend our time trying to
Keep them at it. For such as these the full price of board and
tuition is charged for the time they remain with us, usually not
very long. The general atmosphere of industry about the place
is. however, conducive to the inculcation of such habits in those
who come here.
We do not recommend more than twenty hours work per
month unless in case of financial necessity. This amount can be
accomplished by working an hour a day or half a day on Mon-
day, and still leave all the time necessary for play and recreation,
which is the inalienable right of every boy and girl. Such work,
paid for at the rate of 15c per hour on account, reduces the
price of board to $17.00 per month. Of course there are num-
erous calls for extra work especially at the busy season on the
farm, and any really industrious boy (or girl) can get in a great
BREVARD INSTITUTE 15
deal more than the actual amount required. Any student who
prefers to pay the full cost price for all expenses, may do so,
with the approval of the Superintendent.
A small laboratory fee is charged in connection with the
study of expression, music, commercial branches and all the
sciences, for the purpose of maintaining equipment.
A course of lyceum lectures and entertainments is arranged
for each year and all students are required to attend unless
specially excused. The total cost to each student will not be
more than $2.00 for the entire course. The money invested in
this training probably brings in as large returns in culture and
broadmindedness as any similar part of the fees.
Since the school is operated without any margin for bad ac-
counts, and solely for benevolent purposes, it cannot run on the
credit system. All bills are payable in advance, as follows:

BREVARD INSTITUTE 17
All tuition is payable in advance; board at $20.00 per month
is due in advance but work done about school or farm is credited
against the board bill at the rate of 15c per hour. We do not
recommend that a student do more than 20 hours work per month,
unless in case of financial necessity. This amount of work re-
duces the cost of board to $17.00 per month, and still leaves time
for play and recreation such as any growing child craves and
Students working their way through school, or working for
any considerable portion of their expenses, must bear in mind
the fact that the school must have returns for the expense in-
curred, and that favors they receive necessarily obligate them to
work at times while others may be playing. All such places will
be filled on contract between the school and the student. The
student is responsible for time lost, also for arranging substi-
tute when he is to be absent.
All work is credited at the end of the school month during
which the work is performed. Since bills are rendered in ad-
vance, no work credits can appear on the first month's state-
ments. Final settlement at the close of the year takes this into
Any student who cares to pay full expenses, will of course
be excused from work. Be sure to specify the amount of work
you wish to do on your application blank Any student who per-
sistently lags behind or shirks on work assigned, will be charged
with board at the full rate.
DRESS FOR GIRLS
It is not only the privilege, but the duty of every individual
to present a good appearance. There is sometimes, however, a
difference of opinion and taste in these matters, and the judg-
ment of the Dean of Girls is final authority in the school.
Excessive use of cosmetics is poor taste and is not permitted.
High heeled shoes (spikes) are detrimental to proper physical
development and are not allowed. The only exception to this
rule is in the c".se of Seniors at their graduation, or girls in cos-
tume work. Every girl should have at least two pairs of sub-
stantial, comfortable shoes for school and street wear.
Silk dresses are not permitted for ordinary school wear.
No uniform is required. If so desired, however, by special
arrangement with one of the local stores we are in position to
supply a neat, stylish, but durable, blue serge coat suit, suitable
for any public occasion at a very moderate price.
Rain coat, umbrella, and heavy top coat for cold weather
should be brought from home or provided for. Each girl should
have an adequate supply of work aprons.
18 BREVARD INSTITUTE
All clothing and linens are subject to inspection.
In the interests of sanitation, borrowing* and lending of
clothes and linen is absolutely prohibited. Serious skin infec-
tion may result from violation of this rule.
Expensive, gaudy or flashy dress is not countenanced at any
time. The judgment of the Dean is considered final on these
Each boy should be provided with clothes sufficient for a neat
appearance in school and elsewhere in public. Expensive clothes
are not necessary. In addition, he should have a supply of
rough wear for work, hikes, and play.
PARENTS are requested to take these regulations into consider-
ation and abide by them in providing clothes for their

20 BREVARD INSTITUTE
In addition to the regular literary work, grades 6 to 11,
preparatory to college entrance, the Institute offers thorough
courses in all Commercial branches, music, instrumental or yocal,
Home Economics, Manual Training, and Vocational Agriculture.
Work in any of these departments, if of satisfactory nature, may
"„e counted for High School credit. Our large, well equipped
farm, offers unusual advantages for practical demonstration
work in agriculture. Special classes may be organized if there
is sufficient demand for them, for short courses in dairying,
printing, and farm accounting.
We maintain a department doing elementary work of the
sixth and seventh grades, because of the fact that there are al-
ways some who come up expecting to do High School work and
prove incapable of it without additional preparation. We also
admit those who are really prepared to do work of these
grades, but we assume no responsibility for keeping them if they
prove incapable of doing such work. It is necessary to adhere
strictly to this rule, else we would soon have pupils scattered
all through the work of all the grades, a task we cannot under-
THE DEPARTMENT OF BIBLE STUDY
Miss Margaret Van Lahr, Director
We feel that the Department of Bible Study is one of the
most important phases of our work. It is the field in which we
do a distinctive work, a work not offered in the public schools.
From the students in this department, and similar ones in other
schools, must be recruited the Christian leadership of tomorrow.
Persuaded by observation and experience, that actual knowl-
edge of Biblical content is one of the crying needs of the young
people of today, the first two years of the High School course
are given to a selective study of the materials making up the
Old and New Testaments. Very little effort is spent upon in-
terpretation. The course of study used is that prepared by the
Committee on Correlation of Bible work in Secondary Schools
and Colleges, of the National association of Biblical Instructors,
prepared for Secondary Schools offering a unit of Bible for Col-
lege Entrance. It is procurable in pamphlet form at a very mod-
The general aim of the course is to "enable students to
know the principal narratives and characters of the Bible in
their historical and social settings; to understand and assimilate
the thought, and to feel the beauty and spiritual inspiration of
the Biblical masterpieces."
The third and fourth years are devoted to a study of the
origins, nature, and true applications of Christianity as a regen-
erative force. These courses are of necessity more interpreta-
tive than those of the lower grades, but the interpretation is
neither of a denominational nor controversial type.
BREVARD INSTITUTE 21
The courses have been designed with the expectation that
the largest benefit will be derived by the student who begins
with the first course and follows them through. However, each
course is an entity in itself, and properly completed, will prove
well worth the time and effort expended upon it.
Miss Earleene Poindexter, Director.
Our school of business offers, we think, practically every
advantage that is to be had in any well equipped and directed
business college. No time or pains is spared in individual drill
and instruction in order that the student may have a thorough
comprehension of the principles underlying the work which he
in doing. Thoroughly competent instruction, coupled with the
most modern textbooks and methods, substantiate our claim that
our advantages, though offered at much lower rates than ordin-
arily found, compare favorably with those of the best schools.
The following is a description of the courses:
The Twentieth Century Bookkeeping is used, upon comple-
tion of which a Certificate is issued to the student from the com-
pany publishing this text.
The requirements are as follows:
1. Twenty-five exerecises introducing the ledger, general journal
cash book, sales journal, purchase journal, and trial bal-
ance. No more than two weeks should be devoted to this
introductory part of the course.
2. Part I. This is modeled on a retail grocery business, and
with it the student becomes familiar with the simple trans-
actions and incoming and outgoing papers.
3. Part II. Partnership. Part II is a Grain and Coal business.
4. Part III. Corporation. Wholesale grocery and manufacturing.
At the end of each month of the bookkeeping transactions,
the student is required to make out trial balances, working
sheets, statements of profit and loss, balance sheets, adjustment
entries, closing entries, and post-closing entries.
5. Standard Tests are given upon the completion of each
It should not take more than nine months to complete the
entire course if a student can spend three or four periods a day
with the bookkeeping course; even less time is required if the
student is unusually apt at the work.
The student may elect either Gregg or Isaac Pitman Short-
hand. The requirements in the shorthand courses are as
22 BREVARD INSTITUTE
1. Completion of Textbook, including principles of shorthand,
dictation of words, sentences, and letters.
2. Dictation at the rate of 60, 80, and 100 words a minute.
3. Three one-hundred word letters dictated at the rate of 100
Words a minute, and a transcript of these letters.
4. Upon the completion of each section, tests are given which
the student must pass before he can begin the next section.
Immediately upon the completion of the principles, a test
of two huhdred words is given, and the student must pass this
test before completing the shorthand course.
The Touch System of Typewriting is taught.
The requirements are as follows:
1. Learning the keyboard with Victrola Rhythm Records,
learning the technical names of the principal operative parts
of the typewriter, caring for the typewriter.
2. One hundred perfect pages, including finger drills, words,
figures, sentences, tabulated work, and letters.
3. Writing at the rate of 40 words a minute for 15 minutes on
unfamiliar copy with not more than 5 errors.
4. Becoming familiar with more than one make of machine;
such as Underwood, Royal, L. C. Smith, Remington.
Timed tests are given from time to time, and each month
tests are given as furnished by the Typewriter Company.
The Practical Law course is not intended to make lawyers
out of those in the class, but to enable them to become familiar
with the rules of conduct governing ordinary business procedure.

D. W. Rice, Director.
A thoroughly competent instructor is in charge of this de-
partment, and courses will be offered for high school credit.
This department is being introduced for the benefit of all boys
who enjoy working with their hands, and work in this field is
recommended for all those who can fit it into their course. It
is especially for the benefit of those boys whose minds have the
mechanical turn rather than the abstract. A given amount of
work is assigned and required to be completed for credit. The
character of the work done is also considered.
Manual Training I. This is an introductory course in wood
working, using at first hand tools, and progressing to the use of
machines. Study of woods and grains is made, and there are
various projects required to be completed.
Manual Training II. This course is a further development
of skill in the use of tools, and also requires more difficult pro-
jects. Mechanical drawing and geometrical constructions are
introduced. The aim is to develop independence and self-con-
fidence in the pupil, through development of his own ability.

To receive the High School diploma of graduation, the stu-
dent must have completed sixteen units of regular high school
work. A half unit in Bible for each year the student is in at-
tendance at Brevard Institute is also a requirement. Failure in
more than one such course precludes graduation.
The passing grade is 75. If deemed advisable, a grade of 65
on the first semester's work may be accepted as a condition, to
be made up during the last semester. The average for the two
semesters must be 75. A good grade made during the first
semester positively cannot bring up a failure on the last semes-
ter's work. Such failure must be made up with extra work.
The minimum requirements for High School graduation in
North Carolina are as follows:
English 4 units
History 2 units
Science 1 unit
Mathematics 2 units

BREVARD INSTITUTE 33
Read carefully. Unless you can abide by the
following regulations, do not ask for admittance.
1. Girls who have reached their thirteenth birthday and boys
who have reached their fourteenth birthday, of good health and
good character may be received as boarding pupils, provided they
are prepared to do the work of the school, which means grades 6
to 11. Children who are not prepared for the sixth grade, posi-
tively need not apply. Children under the ages given above, but
who are prepared to do the work we offer can be admitted at an
additional charge of $2.50 per month.
2. Those desiring to enter school should fill out application
blank and return to the superintendent, with matriculation fee.
If the application is not approved, the fee will be returned.
3. Credits from other schools are accepted at the superin-
tendent's discretion. All new pupils should bring with them
reports from former schools.
4. Parents wishing their children to leave the Institute at any
time other than the beginning of the Christmas vacation or the
close of the year in May must notify the superintendent directly,
not through the pupil. Such notice must reach the superintend-
ent at least one week before the absence desired, so that the
superintendent may communicate with the parents if necessary,
before the request is granted.
5. No boarding student will be exempt from attendance as
requ'red on Sunday School and church services; nor from indus-
trial duties except by special arrangement.
6. Girls in the dormitory cannot receive visits or mail from
young men except when their parents send to the superintendent
written permission for them to do so. All communication with
young men must be with the knowledge and consent of both par-
ents and superintendent. No form of written communication
with boys or men in or near the school is permitted.
7. No boarding pupil is allowed to leave the Institute grounds
at any time without permission of the proper supervisor, except
that it is understood the boys may visit town on Saturday after-
noon after school, and may go for walks and hikes in groups on
Sunday afternoon. In no case is loitering and loafing around
streets and stores, permitted.
8. Day pupils are required to be prompt and regular in at-
tendance, and not loiter on the streets or in the stores on even-
ings just preceding a school day. It is understood that when on
or about the campus they will conform to the same standard of
conduct required of boarding pupils.
9. Boarding students are not expected to visit home or friends
oftener than once in six weeks unless for urgent cause.
10. In case of expulsion for improper or immoral conduct,
money cannot be refunded, as unruly students are expensive at
any price and are not wanted. Pupils knowing themselves to be
impure, dishonest, or immoral are advised not to come here.
34 BREVARD INSTITUTE
11. Students must pay full value for damage done to prop-
erty. The cost of breakage in bedrooms must be paid by the oc-
cupants equally in cases where the blame cannot be definitely
12. Boarding students are not allowed to keep guns, pets,
13. The use of extra electrical equipment, with the excep-
tion of curlers, is prohibited. Ironing in the rooms positively
must not be done. Tampering with, or re-arrangement of elec-
tric wiring is expressly forbidden, and will be severely dealt
14. The Institute cannot advance money or school supplies,
but parents may make deposit with the cashier to be used as
needed. Students must not borrow money or clothing from each
15. If a student is compelled to be absent for two weeks
or more in succession, time will be extended into next semester,
if cause of absence is promptly reported to the principal and ap-
proved by him.
16. Tuition fees and board are payable on entrance and in
advance at the beginning of each term thereafter, for the eighteen
weeks, or the remainder thereof unless monthly payments without
discounts are preferred. In no case can contracts be made for
board for less than a month, and no money can be returned for
an'" departure b-fore the end of the school month. For dates
of termination of school months, see calendar.
17. If accounts cannot be paid in full, a note from patron
for amount due at 6 per cent interest will be accepted with the
approval of the superintendent.
18. Music or other "extra" lessons missed through fault of
teacher or school will be made up to the student. If missed
through fault of student or on account of holidays or examina-
tions, they will not be deducted from bill.
19. All complaints or requests of parents should be sent to
the superintendent by separate letter and not in student's letter.
20. Polite conduct is required of every student on all occa-
sions. Development of cultured character : s regarded as one of
our chief functions.
21. Anv student who repeatedlv violates anv of the above
rules, or who shows himself consistently to be out of harmonv
with the spirit of the Institute, mav be a?ked at any time to
sever his connections with the school.
22. Except in case of emergency, do not ask to leave ahead
of time for holidays or week-ends. If unavo ; dablv detained at
home, the pupil must bring a written explanation from hom°, or
no excuse will be granted. An unexcu?ed absence counts 5 per
cent against the monthly grade.
23. Failure in any subject for three months in succession
means demotion to the next lower grade in that subject. If anv
nupil fails three months in success : on on all his work, he is sent
24. It is earnestly urged that if you find it necessary to leave
BREVARD INSTITUTE 35
school, you take the matter up with the business office before
leaving, in order that the proper adjustment of accounts may be
made on our books.
Penalties are used only as a last resort or in flagrant cases of
misconduct. The pupil of right mind and proper training will
respond to suggestion, reproof, and correction.
Any penalty assessed is designed to meet the particular sit-
uation for which it is assessed. The purpose of punishment is
correction, and in some instances, such as damaged property, the
recovery of values. Various penalties may be employed, at the
discretion of the teacher or supervisor, except that no major
penalty may be assessed without the approval of the superin-
tendent. A major penalty is the assessment of ten or more de-
merits for one offense.
Demerits are cumulative. They may be assessed by any
teacher or supervisor for misconduct in the class-room or else-
where, but demerits assessed must be reported weekly to the
When any student accumulates 25 demerits, he is warned in
regard to Irs conduct, and all penalties assigned according to the
nature of the case.
When a student accumulates 50 demerits, all personal priv-
ileges are forfeited for a period of one month, or longer unless
his conduct improves. Such privileges include all social contacts
with the other sex, permission to visit home or elsewhere, or to
leave the campus unless on urgent business, and then only when
properly chaperoned. He is also ineligible to hold any special
work or scholarship from the school. These places are cons'd-
ered as rewards for merit.
When a student accumulates 75 demerits, he is considered
hopelessly out of harmony with the ideals of our institution, and
it is suggested that he leave school before it becomes necessary
to resort to expulsion. If he prefers to stay and reform his con-
duct, he has a margin of 25 ; n his favor, but the accumulation
of 100 demerits during one term automatically severs his con-
nection with the school. All demerits above 75 are assessed by
majority vote of the faculty.
WHAT THE STUDENT SHOULD BRING
1. REPORT CARD OR RECORD OF PREVIOUS WORK.
2. All personal wearing apparel and toilet articles.
3. Four sheets.
4. REPORT CARD OR RECORD OF PREVIOUS WORK.
5. Umbrella, Raincoat, Overcoat.

1. Give your children the advantage of an education. This
may require a sacrifice on your part, but it will increase the hap-
piness of your children through all their lives, besides multiply-
ing their capacity for usefulness.
2. After they have been placed in school, give them to un-
derstand that they must sacrifice enough to remain there faith-
fully unless real emergency prevents. Success always requires
3. Write at least once a week to your children and have them
write to you not less frequently. Loving letters, firm when nec-
essary, but always loving are the inherent right of every child
away from home.
4. If your child needs special care or attention in any
respect, write to the superintendent about it. If the Institute
can undertake to give this special attention, it should be begun
early. If it cannot be given, you should know it.
5. Do not make unnecessary special requests, particularly
about irregular entrance or departure. One great advantage of
boarding school life is the lesson of regularity it inculcates, and
this is utterly lost to those who receive special treatment.
