Blue Mountain College

Blue Mountain College is an academic community of faculty, staff, students, and alumni committed to pursuing Christ-centered excellence in a grace-filled environment. Unapologetically Christian in its approach to teaching and learning, Blue Mountain prepares students to be leaders in their chosen professions, in their churches, and in their communities. Educated in the liberal arts tradition, Blue Mountain graduates enter the workplace equipped to engage the culture and to fulfill their God-given calling. Blue Mountain College is supported by the Mississippi Baptist Convention. Deeply committed to the education of its students since its founding in 1873, the College has continued to attract capable, confident students who desire to pursue knowledge through a Christian worldview in a caring, person-centered environment. Blue Mountain students vary in ages and backgrounds. Some come as freshmen; others transfer from nearby community colleges or universities. Regardless of age or background, the individual student is of utmost value and importance at BMC. Faculty and staff believe in the ability of the student to participate constructively in his/her educational development. Blue Mountain College has over the years sought to prepare students for meaningful lives. Emphasis has been given to the development of strength of character and the ability to live creatively. Through small classes, a close faculty-student relationship, and a focus on the importance of the individual, the College has endeavored to produce graduates who are well-prepared academically and spiritually to accept places of leadership in their professions, in their communities, and in the work of the denomination.
