Founded in 1855, Berea College achieved national
distinction as the first coeducational and interracial college in the South.
Berea has a longstanding commitment to interracial education, and is one of the
most racially diverse private liberal arts colleges in the United States. With
an emphasis on service to Appalachia and beyond, Berea enrolls 1,650 students
from 40 states and 60 countries. Berea College only admits students who are
unable to afford tuition and provides all of them a no-tuition promise, valued
at more than $176,000 over four years. Berea’s students excel in the College’s
supportive yet demanding academic environment, and many are the first in their
families to graduate college. As one of eight federally recognized Work
Colleges, all Berea students hold a position in which they work 10-12 hours
weekly. Washington Monthly ranked Berea College No. 1 in the
South, while the Wall Street Journal and Times (of London) Higher Education
ranked Berea the No. 1 College in the country in terms of affordability. In
their 2019 report US News and World Report ranked Berea as the best liberal
arts college in Kentucky; No. 8 in Best Undergraduate Teaching; and No. 2 in
Most Innovative Schools. Berea’s recognition comes from success in educating
and graduating academically talented, low-income students who become
service-oriented leaders in their professions and communities.
Located where the Bluegrass Region meets the Cumberland Mountains,
