Matron The following is a statement of its most important important features : 1 . The School is situated in the most healthful region east of the Mississippi River, in a climate giving the largest opportunity for outdoor life. 2. The grounds contain seven hundred fourteen acres of land, providing fields for sports, ponds, streams, woods and hills. This land was selected not only with regard to its usefulness, but also for the beauty of its surroundings. 3. The buildings were constructed especially for school purposes and are thoroughly sanitary. 4. The masters are college graduates, chosen for their fit- ness to instruct and care for boys. 5. The School is small enough to insure intimate fellow- ship between faculty and boys, yet large enough to give scope to a variety of interests outside of the academic work. 6. The School is known for the great personal care given the boys. 7. The courses of study, though broad, are consistent, and give the best preparation to boys who desire to enter any college or technical school or to go into business. 8. The religious teachings of the School are non-sectarian.  6 A sheville School LOCATION To select the location best fulfilling the conditions men- tioned, the founders studied carefully the country east of the Mississippi River, and were convinced that the mountain region of Western North Carolina surpassed all others. They chose, therefore, a site near Asheville. CLIMATE This region is noted for its climate. Since it has an altitude of twenty-three hundred feet above sea-level, its atmosphere is clear and dry, and it has more clear, sunny days than any other locality in the eastern part of the United States. The autumn weather is delightful and continues well into the winter, which, though short, is cold and brac- ing. Even in winter the air is so dry and the sun so bright as to make outdoor life pleasant at all times. From the first of March to the first of July the weather is mild and invigorating, and during this period there are few hot sultry days. ACCESSIBILITY Asheville is situated half-way between Lake Erie and the Gulf of Mexico, and is reached by the through trains of the Southern Railway from New York via Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington; from Cincinnati; from At- lanta; from New Orleans, and from Jacksonville. It is, therefore, easy of access from all parts of the country. UEETINO BOYS To save parents unnecessary journeys and expense, masters will meet boys at the beginning of each term at New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Chicago, Asheville School 7 Cleveland, Cincinnati, and conduct them to Asheville in Pullman cars reserved by the School, At the end of each term, boys will be returned to these points in the same manner. When there is a sufficient number of boys from localities other than those mentioned, similar arrangements will be made for their transportation. The site chosen contains about seven hundred fourteen acres and is five miles west of Asheville, with which it is connected by a good asphalt road and the Southern Railway. The property is bounded on the east by Hominy Creek, which furnishes excellent canoeing facilities for several miles. Ragsdale Creek flows through the grounds for more than a mile. A dam of reinforced concrete, built across this creek, makes a large lake a mile in length, used for swim- ming and boating and all kinds of aquatic sports. The buildings and play grounds are situated one hundred and fifty feet above the level of the creeks. Much of the land is sufficiently level to make fine fields for baseball, football, tennis, golf and other sports, and a large tract is densely wooded. Within two miles, north and south, mountains rise to a height of four thousand feet. On the east is the range of the Black Mountains culminating in Mt. Mitchell, six thousand seven hundred feet in altitude, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River. On the west are the Balsam Mountains and ranges of the Blue Ridge with Mt. Pisgah, five thousand s even hundred feet in altitude. The views in all directions are very beautiful. 8 A sheville School THE HOtrsE The House, the dormitory for boys of the lower forms, is of pleasing architecture, substantially built of brick and cement, and tasteful in finish. It is heated by steam, lighted by electricity, and equipped with an excellent system of ven- tilation, and with ample lavatories and bathrooms provided with the best modem plumbing. The Senior House is a dormitory for the use of the boys of the upper two forms. This building is similar to the House in general appearance and construction, and is fitted with all modern conveniences for the comfort of the pupils. It has been named Percy Lawrence Hall, in memory of Millard Percy Lawrence, a member of the Class of 1906. THE The Gymnasium, a very substantial brick building, con- tains five squash courts, four basketball courts which may be used also for indoor baseball or indoor tennis, rowing machines, the usual apparatus, locker rooms, shower baths and a swimming pool twenty feet wide and seventy feet long. It is the gift of generous friends of this school, Mrs. George Tod Perkins and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Beebe Raymond, grandmother and parents of George Perkins Raymond of the Class of 1914. The tablet bears this inscription: THE GEORGE PERKINS RAYMOND GYMNASIUM ERECTED AS A HELP TOWARDS PERFECT MANHOOD Asheville School 9 The School, built of brick and cement, incorporates the best features of the most approved modern school buildings. It contains the recitation rooms, library, laboratories, shops, study and auditorium, and is heated by steam and lighted by electricity. « « THE SCHOOL The dining-room and the boiler house are detached buildings. This arrangement secures immunity from dan- ger of fire, since there is no fire in the main buildings. OTHER BUILDINGS All the water used in the buildings is brought by pipes from mountain springs which are several hundred feet higher than the School and above all habitations. WATER The system of drainage is perfect. All sewage is car- ried in drains more than a mile from the buildings and emptied into a swift-flowing stream. DRAINAGE The School has its own dairy and gardens, which pro- vide abundance of pure milk and wholesome vegetables. DAIRY AND GARDENS The masters have been selected with reference to their teachers recognized ability. All the masters are college graduates who have had successful experience in the instruction and management of boys and have prepared themselves for this special work. 10 A sheville School The Headmaster has the especial care and charge of all the boys. He and the masters desire to know every boy inti- mately, so that natural aptitudes may be discovered, proper encouragement given, and defects of character remedied. Boys known to be vicious, objectionable, dull or persistently lazy will not be admitted; if unwittingly admitted, they will not be retained. Asheville has many excellent physicians and surgeons, one of whom is connected with the School. A trained nurse is a member of the School household. The School physician makes examinations each year, that he may find all weaknesses and prescribe proper exer- cises to remedy them. EXERCISE Each pupil is required to exercise every day, out-of- doors when possible, otherwise in the gymnasium. The masters supervise and control the athletic exercise and games of the boys and coach them in their sports. For the various forms of exercise the School grounds contain three baseball diamonds, football field, track, nine tennis courts, a short golf course, and a rowing course for the crews, three-fourths of a mile in length. It is the intention not only to encourage the usual school sports, but also to arrange for such pastimes as will develop individual talent and inventiveness. It is the conviction that, while football, baseball and track athletics are excel- lent training, they should be supplemented to a considerable degree by natural play. The neglect of this old-time play PHYSICAL EXAMINATION Asheville School 11 for the conventional routine of athletics leaves the boys too dependent upon others and lacking in resources. With the woods, streams, boats, hills, fields and the shops, there are abundant opportunities for all kinds of play. The School is divided into two clubs, known as the Blues and the Whites. These clubs have contests in the various athletic sports, to which certain points or credits are assigned. The club whose members have won the greatest number of points is declared the winner for the year. The School is not a sanatorium for sickly boys, but rather a place where boys may grow up and develop under the most favorable conditions. Boys having tubercular troubles are not admitted. Effort is made to inculcate the essential teachings of religion. The School is not connected with any particular denomination, but prayers of the Episcopal Service are read at the opening of the school each day; church services are held on Sunday mornings, and Bible classes on Sunday evenings. Especial thought has been given to the courses of study. The purpose is to prepare the boys to enter any college or technical school, and to give a sound education to those who intend to go from school immediately into business life. NOT A SANATORIUM KELIGIOTJS LIFE COURSES OF STUDY 12 Asheville School The selection and order of studies follows largely the recommendations of the Committee on College Entrance Requirements appointed by the National Educational As- sociation to suggest ideal courses of study for secondary schools. During the first two forms, the so-called grammar or intermediate grades, the course of study is nearly the same for all boys. For the upper four forms there are two courses of study, the Academic and the Scientific. The Academic Course prepares boys to enter the aca- demic department of any college or university. The Scien- tific Course prepares boys for technical schools, and gives a thorough English education to those who go immediately into business. In each of these courses, although the prin- ciple of election is recognized, as for instance between French and German in the Academic Course, yet a certain number of constants is required. The study of English, Mathematics, History, Science and Manual Training is re- quired of all boys. The study of some foreign language, ancient or modern, is required in the Scientific Course, as necessary to a liberal education. LiBRABY The library, called The Hillyer Holden Library, was founded by the gift of Mr. R. A. Holden, of Cincinnati, in memory of his son, Hillyer Holden. It contains well-selected works of reference and general literature and also the best periodicals. A s h e V i 1 1 e S c h o 0 1 13 Instruction in Piano, Violin and Mandolin is provided. music Boys to be admitted to the lowest form must be proficient - S- MENTS FOB in reading and spelling easy English, and must know admission Arithmetic through decimal fractions, and the Geography of the United States, Europe and Asia. Applicants for advanced standing will pass such exami- nations as are considered necessary, and will be placed in the forms suited to their proficiency. No new boys are admitted to the sixth form and no change in the course of study is permitted after the student has begun the work of the sixth form. No new boys will be admitted to the fifth form whose preparation is so irregular or deficient that they may not do satisfactorily the work of the form or may not be prepared adequately for the preliminary examinations for admission to college if they are to enter college at the end of their course. Every applicant must furnish a record of his previous work and must present a certificate of honorable dismissal from his former school. A set of examination papers showing the work which must be done by a boy of any form before he is promoted to the next higher form will be sent on application. 14 Asheville School PBOMOTiONS Promotions are based upon the daily work of the boys, AND RE- , . . , . , , , , ' ASSIGNMENTS upon tests, and upon examinations which are held at the end of the first and second terms on the work of these terms and at the end of the school year on the work of the year. At the close of the fall term, boys whose work in daily recitations and examinations shows that they are not doing satisfactorily the work of their forms will be dropped into the next lower form. Re-assignments to a higher or lower form are made at any time for adequate reasons. « « GBADUATION A Certificate of Graduation is given to every boy who completes successfully the work of the sixth form. HONOBS Honors of two grades are given. Honors of the first grade are given to boys who have received no marks lower than satisfactory in deportment, and 80 in industry and scholarship, and honors of the second grade to boys who have received no marks lower than satisfactory in deport- ment and 80 in industry and no marks lower than 70 in scholarship. EXAMINATIONS AND CEBTIFICATES FOR ADMISSION TO COLLEGE The examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board used by all colleges which require examinations for admission are held at the School. Certificates of the School are accepted by colleges which accept students on certificate. A sheville School IS AsheviUe School seeks those boys only whose home life general , , , , ANNOUNCE- has laid the foundation for good character, manly conduct ments and good scholarship. The discipline is not adapted to boys who require severe restrictions and the method of instruction assumes that the boys have some power of appli- cation and a will to work. Important letters and telegrams should be addressed to the Headmaster. All requests should be made to the Head- master direct and not through the boys. All business dealings must be conducted between the parents and the Headmaster, and checks should be made payable to Asheville School. All rooms are single rooms and so placed as to have the sun half of each day, and there is not much difference between them. Assignments of rooms to old boys are made during the summer. Assignments to new boys are made in the order of application for admission to the School. The rooms are supplied with bedstead, springs, mattress, pillow, sheets, pillow slip, two double blankets, counterpane, chiffonier, table, book shelves, chair and clothes closet. Each boy should bring with him: Bible, prayer-book, small rug, toilet articles, face towels, bath towels, wash cloths, soap; and should be provided with the usual clothing worn during the fall and winter months, and in addition should have rubber coat or mackintosh and boots for tramp- ing. All articles of clothing must be marked plainly with the boy ' s full name. Each boy ' s teeth should receive careful attention before he comes to school, and in case trouble with the eyes is sus- pected, a careful examination by a competent oculist should be made. 16 A sheville School Boys may consult a doctor only with the permission of the Headmaster. All mail matter, express packages and freight should be sent in care of Asheville School to secure prompt delivery. Large allowances of money are unnecessary and harm- ful, since there is no occasion for any extraordinary expendi- ture. Parents are, therefore, urged to give small allowances and are requested to indicate their pleasure concerning the manner of payment and to specify what expenses the allow- ance should cover. A plan connecting the boy ' s allowance with the monthly grades has proven most satisfactory and is strongly recommended. A circular showing details of th plan will gladly be furnished. Parents who desire the Headmaster to take charge of the allowance money should make a deposit each half year for that purpose. All pay- ments stop when the deposit is exhausted. Boxes and packages of food are forbidden without special permission of the Headmaster. Damages to School property in rooms or alcoves will be repaired at the cost of the occupant of the room or alcove affected. Boys will not be permitted to remain away from the School at night or to visit hotels except with their parents. Any boy who absents himself from the School at night without permission thereby severs his connection with the School. No explanation or excuse will be accepted regard- ing an infraction of this rule. Boys shall not sell or trade off personal property of any kind without the written permission of the parent and the consent of the Headmaster. A sheville School 17 If the influence of any boy is believed to be harmful to the School, apart from any overt acts of disobedience or insubordination, he may be summarily dismissed. No firearms are allowed at the School. The deportment, industry and scholarship of each boy are made known to his parents or guardian every four weeks. All text-books and stationery used may be purchased at the School at regular rates. Boys should bring with them the books they studied during the past year. There are few extra or incidental expenses. Therefore expense parents may know in advance what the cost for the school year will be. The annual charge covers the tuition fee and all living expenses except for clothing. The charge for books and stationery is extra. The School provides all articles used by the various School teams — crews, baseball, football, basketball, tennis, golf and track athletics — which are not personal or individual property. The School pays the expenses of the teams and purchases the trophies awarded. No admission fee is charged for any athletic con- tests or entertainments held at the School. No extra charge is made for infirmary service or for the services of a trained nurse, unless a special nurse is required. The annual charge is $1,350, payable $675 at the open- ing of school in September and $675 on January first. Boys are accepted in September only with the understanding that they are to remain for the full year; however, no objection will be made to a withdrawal during the Christmas vacation provided notice is given before January first. Unless such notice is given, the parent or guardian will be expected to pay for the remainder of the year. 18 Asheville School No part of the semi-annual fee will be remitted in case of dismissal, withdrawal or absence. New boys entering in January will be charged $775 for the remainder of the year. The fee for instruction in instrumental music is $120, payable $60 at the opening of school in September and $60 on January first. This fee includes the use of instruments for practice. Coursiesi of Mnbp « « THE Courses of Study mention the minimum require- ments for each form. Pupils of either course are permitted and encouraged to take studies of the other course when additional work can be done profitably. Each pupil must take all studies required for entrance to the col- lege of his choice. Both Physics and Chemistry must be taken by pupils of the Scientific Course, and each pupil of this course must take such languages — Latin, German, French or Spanish — as his chosen college requires for admission.
