The following is a statement of its most important important features: 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.

8 A sheville School LOCATION CLIMATE ACCESSIBILITY MEETING BOYS 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. 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. 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 Atlanta; from New Orleans; and from Jacksonville. It is, therefore, easy of access from all parts of the country. To save parents unnecessary journeys and expense, masters will meet boys at the beginning of each term at New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Chicago,
