eager boys and girls from many of

termination to do better work’ this
year than they have done in other
years. Many new students have en
rolled and as usual, the number of
girls is in excess of that of the boys.
Already the girl’s dormitory has over
flowed and the girls will occupy the
boys cottages on the campus, while
the boys will enjoy their new qu-irter^
across the creek. While the person-

the same, there are a few changes we

best accommodations. Improve

new farm has been developed ami

Ever.vthing and everybody is in readi
ness for a successful school term. For
the information of those unfaii/iii:i»
vi’ith this school we v.'ould say tfvJ.
the work done by Brevard Institute
is that of a junior-senior h'gh scho I
beginning v.ith the seventh gra-.l.'-,
which gives the pupils that common
knowledge and skill which will help
them to lit in with all pupils of other
schools that they may associate with.
Before they begin the ninth gTiuit
pupils are urged to decide whether
the.y will go to college or not. If
they elect To go, they take the usual
courses in Latin and Algebra. If not,
they are urged to take up some vocu-
tional training. To help them at this
stage a Vocational Guidance couivc
has been prepared which touches up
on all the various courses of the
school, thus helping pupils to find in
what line cf work their own tastes
Among the vocational courses pro
vided are: Pedagogy, nursing, elec
tricity, printing, domestic science,
photography, etc. In fact a cla^is is
formed for any vocat’cnal study
where a sufficient number of pupils
require th’? s^’vice. This school pro
vides board and tuition for nine
months for $152.80.
