A History of the Berry Schools on the Mountain Campus
At the dawn of the twentieth century, Martha Berry had a vision that a residential school for young men and women with limited educational opportunities would help break the cycle of poverty that pervaded the rural South. She began an educational experiment in northwest Georgia that unfolded during her lifetime and continues into the twenty-first century. This book tells the story of a part of that school--the high school that existed on the Mountain Campus at Berry for more than six decades. For the students who were educated there, the school was transformative. As one alumnus explained, the school had about it an "intangible magic." Join author and Berry Academy alumna Jennifer Dickey as she captures the spirit of that school that today lives on in the "head, heart and hands" of its graduates.
