This was a pleasant surprise. We had been driving around Branson and the surrounding areas when we happened on this college. We decided to check it out. We spent our entire day here. What a refreshing experience!
All students attend this college and do not pay tuition. They work 15 hours/week and 2 weeks of 40 hours yearly. The college has its own restaurant--excellent upscale dining, ice creamery, dairy farm, weaving/grist mill, agricultural area. They students must adhere to a dress code, and there is zero tolerance for alcohol and drugs.
It was so refreshing to learn about this particular view on how to earn your education, graduating debt free, while also becoming a responsible, patriotic, caring, hard working adult. We found the students very candid in answering our questions.
There is a beautiful chapel on the grounds, which was originally built by students. This was just a remarkable way to spend the day away from the tourism of Branson.
