Brevard College is committed to an experiential liberal arts education that encourages personal growth and inspires artistic, intellectual, and social action.
A baccalaureate, residential, church-affiliated institution, Brevard College is situated in the southern Appalachian mountains of Western North Carolina. True to our Motto: Cognosce ut prosis – learning in order to serve, the programs and opportunities of the College provide graduates the foundation for further formal study, meaningful vocations, responsible citizenship, and lifelong personal and professional development.
Lake Toxaway Charities, Inc. has been helping Brevard College fulfill its mission to local students since the inception of the Lake Toxaway Charities Annual and Endowed Scholarships in 1997. For academic year 2020/2021, three Brevard College students received Lake Toxaway Charities scholarship funds. In this school year the fund supports a business and organizational leadership major, an exercise science major, and an art major.
During the 2020/21 academic year, Brevard College has committed approximately $13,244,333 in scholarship support, making every effort to lessen the burden of college debt after graduation. The current tuition is $40,650 with an approximate average financial aid package of $26,600. Locally, the college has made a commitment to providing education opportunities to local students. As a result, a Half-Tuition Scholarship is offered to all students from Transylvania County
Lake Toxaway Charities is pleased to announce that it recently awarded the college with a grant for the 2021/2022 academic year to make education attainable for Transylvania County students receiving financial aid.
The first Lake Toxaway Charities student scholarship dedicated to a Brevard College student was created in 1990, beginning a decades-long partnership with the college. The scholarship was designed to provide an affordable education for a student from the Lake Toxaway community at Brevard College. Over the years this funding has continued to morph and the scholarship now includes students from Sapphire, Balsam Grove, and Rosman.
In these uncertain times, Brevard College is thankful for neighbors that care about the power of education. Education has the ability to transform lives and the college is pleased to work together with Lake Toxaway Charities to make Transylvania County a wonderful place to learn, live, work, and play.– Brevard College newsletter dated 7/17/2020
