RG 06. Academic Divisions
Found in 56 Collections and/or Records:
Created as an affiliated school of Berea College, the Academy served as a Senior High School. In 1938, reorganization abolishes the Academy by adding the ninth and tenth grades to the Foundation School, thus creating the Lower Division (Grades 11-12, College Freshman and Sophomore years) and Upper Division (College Junior and Senior years) to the College.
This collection contains information and records of the Berea Kindergarten affiliated with Berea College in the early to mid-20th century. The program was started by Minna Glass Durham with the encouragement of College staff and was run for some time in the Blue Ridge residence hall on the Berea College campus before moving to the Union Church.
