Asheville S c h o el 13 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 eeligious 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. The Mitchell Society (named in honor of Charles Andrews Mitchell) was organized by the Class of 1923. The aim of the society is to foster the religious spirit in the School and to encourage and direct works of charity on the part of the student body. This society is conducted entirely by the boys. ]sroT A SANATORIirM

12 A s hevill e School CAHE OF BOYS 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. * * PHYSICAL The School physicians make examinations each year, EXAMINATION ^ £ j i j -u that they may nnd any weaknesses and prescribe proper ex- ercises to remedy them. EXEBGISE 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, two soccer football fields, track, nine tennis courts, a 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

14 Asheville School C0I7BSES 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. 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 E nglish 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. MUSIC Instruction in Piano, Violin and Mandolin is provided. CHARLES ANDREWS Each year five partial scholarships for deserving stu- scHOLARSHiPs dents are provided from a fund established in memory of Charles Andrews Mitchell, one of the founders of the School.
