Diplomas will be given to those who complete either the Normal or Scientific Course; and those who graduate in the

Location

This school is beautifully located in the city of Raleigh, N. C., within five minutes walk of the Post Office and Capitol. The
grounds include several acres of land, and are among the finest in the city. This Institution already furnishes by far the largest
accommodations of any colored school in North Carolina, and in the large number of advanced pupils, is not surpassed by any
colored Institute in the country.

In the various departments of the School, all the different branches are taught which a thorough course of study requires.
In the Preparatory Department the elementary branches are pursued, and students are fitted to enter the Normal Department,
where, in both the male and female departments, this system has been successfully introduced, and thus affords pupils the
opportunity to prepare themselves to become teachers with as thorough a drill as would be secured in any Normal School in
the North.

A College Department has also been established to accommodate students who aspire to a more liberal education, and
classes have been formed to meet the wants of this class of students.

Page 17

It must be distinctly understood, however, that a student, in order to be advanced into the higher course, must have
mastered the elementary branches and be able to bear a critical examination in all the studies pursued in the Normal
Department. No scholarship of a superficial character will be allowed to advance a pupil in his course, and thus enable him to
lay claim to knowledge he never possessed, resulting in positive injury to himself and calculated to bring reproach upon the
Institution.

The Theological Department is in successful operation, and such a course of study pursued as will quality young men for
the work of the gospel ministry. Colored ministers of the State will be welcomed even if they remain in school only a month or
two at a time.

Expenses Per Month:

Board for young men and women . . . . . $ 6 00

Tuition, room rent, beds and furniture . . . . . 1 50

Fuel and lights . . . . . 0 50

The young ladies will be allowed to do their own washing. The young men will be charged extra fifty cents per month for
washing, if done by the Institution.

Music.

The expense of instruction upon the Organ and Piano is $10.00 per Session. As the colored people possess great natural
ability in Music it has been thought desirable to afford first-class facilities that they may be able to cultivate this talent, which
cannot fail to be of great service as an auxiliary in promoting their elevation and especially in its attractive and refining influence
both in connection with the Sabbath School work and their religious worship.

Beneficiaries.

Young men who have the ministry in view, and can present testimonials of unblemished moral and religious character, will
be assisted, if found worthy after several months of trial in school. It is expected, however, that they will enter school at the
commencement of the session, and remain through the year, and will assist in their support by working sufficiently to keep the
grounds in good order, and cultivate the lands connected with the premises. Students who do not enter School at the
commencement of the session and comply with rules governing beneficiaries will forfeit their scholarship.
