It is the design of this Institution to furnish instruction in all the branches 
of an English and Classical education. Lads are received into the Prepara- 
tory Department at any stage of advancement, where they are thoroughly 
instructed in the common English branches. The very general deficiency 
which exists in our systems of elementary education renders a school of 
this nature an invaluable auxiliary to one of a higher character. With- 
out a correct linowledge of the studies which it embraces, the pupil is not 
prepared to enter upon a more advanced course of eitlier English or Clas- 
sical education. 

The Higher English Course is designed for tlae benefit of tliose 
whose age, means, or plans for life may render a regular Collegiate edu- 
cation impracticable. The student is permitted to pursue any of the stu- 
dies he may choose, independent of the dead languages. 

Lectures are delivered on tlie Natural Sciences, accompanied with ex- 
periments. 



CLASSICAL DEPARTMENT. 

The course of study in this department is as thorough and complete as 
that pursued in any other Institution. The text-books used are of the 
most approved character. During the past year, there have been two re- 
gular College Classes — Freshman and Sophomore. At the commence- 
ment of the ensuing session a Junior Class will be organized. 



THEOLOGICAL DEPARTMENT. 

The students of the Theological Department will be directed in such a 
course of English, Classical and Theological studies, as the age, circum- 
stances, and acquirements of each may demand. As tliis must be much 
varied to apply to individual cases, no particular course of study, nor set 
of text-books is presented in this Catalogue. But as the leading object of 
such Students is the preaching of the Gospel, so their studies will be di- 
rected in such a way as to give them a correct knowledge of Truth, un- 
biassed by human authority, and ability to communicate the same with 
clearness, facility and force.

The Acadmic year commences on the first Monday in October, and 
consists of one session of ten months; which is divided into two terms of 
five months each. There is but one vacation, (except a week during 
Chi-istmas holy-days,) M'hich embraces the months of August and Septem- 
ber. In consequence of this arrangement, the pupils can be with their 
friends during the unhealthy season. 

There are two Examinations a year ; one previous to the Christnnas re- 
cess, the other at the expiration of the session in July, when every Student 
is required to undergo a thorough examination on the studies of the pre- 
ceding term, and perform such other exercises as the Faculty may assign. 



EXPENSES. 

The necessary expenses at this Institution are moderate. Exclusive of 
clothing, they need not exceed .$200 per annum. But if tlie Student is 
allowed the free use of money, and is disposed to be extravagant, he may 
spend much more here as well as elsewhere, though it is believed that 
Marion presents fewer temptations to extravagance tlian any town in 
Alabama. 



THE FOLLOWING ARE THE 

RATES OF TUITION, BOARD, &c. 

Languages and Higher English, (per term,) $25 00 

Common English branches, From $12 to 16 00 

Modern Languages, (extra,) 20 00 

Incidentals, 100 

Students occupying rooms in the Institution will be charged 
$1 a month for room, and servant to attend upon it, per term, 5 00 

Board, per month, 8 00 

Washing, do From $1 to 1 50 

Fuel and light will, of course, vary with the season, and will at all times 

depend much upon tlie economy of tlie Student. 

No deduction in Tuition will be made for absence, except in cases of 

protracted illness. The Student is charged from the time of entering to 

the close of tlie term ; unless for special reasons, he is admitted for a 

shorter period. 

Q;^ In the Theological Department, tuition and room rent are free. 



BUILDING, &c. 

A large and commodious edifice has been erected, containing spacious 
public rooms (as Chapel, Laboratory, Recitation rooms, &c.) and a large 
number of Dormitories. 

The Institution is also in possession of a valuable Apparatus, and a Li- 
brary containing about 1000 volumes. 



CONCLUSION. 

The Howard Collegiate and Theological Institution was estab- 
lished by the Baptist State Convention of Alabama, convened at Tallade- 
ga, in 1841. In the Journal of that body is contained a Report of the com- 
mittee on Education, setting forth " the expediency and importance of es- 
tablishing and endowing a College or University of high order, and in 
connection therewith, a Theological Department." 

On the 29th December of the same year, by the act of the Legislature, 
the Trustees were constituted a body corporate, by the name of " Trus- 
tees OF Howard College," with " full power and authority to have 
and use a common seal — to receive donations and purchase property, both 
real and personal, in value not exceeding two hundred thousand dollars — 
to confer such degrees in the arts and sciences as are usually conferred 
in other Colleges and Universities in the United States — to give diplomas 
or certificates thereof," &c., embracing all the privileges and immunities 
of other bodies of a similar character. 

The Institution went into operation on the first of January, 1842, and 
has been steadily advancing in numbers and character to the present 
time. A Theological Professorship has been endowed, and several pro- 
mising young men are now pursuing studies with reference to the minis- 
try. Some progress has been made in the endowment of a Professorship 
in the Literary Department, but the monetary embarrassments of the com- 
munity, together with the exertions required to erect the new building, 
have caused the Board to suspend this undertaking for the present. It is 
their intention to resume it as soon as practicable. In the mean time ev- 
ery effort will be made to increase the facilities for imparting knowledge, 
I and to make the Institution what its founders designed it should be — " A 
Collegiate and Theological Institution."
