The Brevard College Mission Statement: Brevard College is committed to an experiential liberal arts education that encourages personal growth and inspires artistic, intellectual, and social action.
There’s something special about Brevard, and you’ll know it when you step on campus. Our creative teaching styles, world-class location, and small classroom experiences all combine to create a truly unique educational atmosphere.
- A Brevard College education means much more than memorizing answers or scoring well on a test. Our mission and experiential methods promote active, hands-on learning in all settings, whether it’s in a classroom, on the field or court, at campus activities, in the woods, or in the community.
- If you want to get lost in the crowd, then Brevard isn’t the place for you. We have just over 650 students, an average class size of 15, and a faculty to student ratio of 11:1 - so if you don’t show up to class, someone’s going to notice! Here you can go beyond the lectures and build personal relationships with professors who truly want to see you succeed.
Brevard professors are outstanding in their fields and in their commitment to their students. Our small class sizes and experiential strategies create a dynamic educator-learner relationship. Brevard faculty are deeply invested in the education and welfare of their students and will support and push you to reach your goals.
- Brevard College’s exceptional location fosters experiences that would be impossible anywhere else. Our students study and play just outside our door in Pisgah National Forest, DuPont State Forest, Bracken Mountain Recreation Area, Gorges State Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Cradle of Forestry. Downtown Brevard, which is less than a mile from the College, offers hands-on learning opportunities through community service, art, music, and mountain culture. Brevard is also only 35 miles from Asheville and 20 miles from the Asheville Regional Airport.
There’s something special about Brevard, and we want you to discover it for yourself. Visit campus and see if Brevard College is the right fit for you!
