Berry College is an independent, coeducational college with fully accredited arts, sciences and professional programs plus specialized graduate programs in education and business administration. The college is recognized as one of the outstanding comprehensive colleges in the South.
Berry was founded in 1902 as a school for enterprising rural boys at a time when few public schools existed in Georgia. A girls' school was added in 1909. Berry became one of the nation's most successful educational experiments, combining academic study, student work and interdenominational Christian religious emphasis. A junior college was established in 1926 and a four-year college in 1930; graduate programs were added in 1972.
