1. Deep Springs College

COMMUNITY COLLEGE DETAILS:

Established : 1998
Website : www.deepsprings.edu
Contact No : (760) 872-2000

PROFILE:

Leadership and enlightened service are the aims of Deep Springs, which fulfills its educational mission by bringing students into intense contact with nature, work, and ideas. Deep Springs’ challenging and comprehensive educational program is designed for a few of the most promising students entering college each year. No tuition or fees are levied, but strenuous effort, self-governance, and selfless service to the community are expected of everyone. The college takes sound principles of teaching and learning to their practical limits. Based on a cattle ranch in an isolated desert-mountain valley, the college enables its twenty-six male students to experience and take year-round responsibility for a largely self-sustaining community, ranch, and farm, while requiring them to engage in a two-year liberal arts honors program.

COURSES/PROGRAMS OFFERED:

Courses at Deep Springs are intensive and interactive seminars. The average class size is eight, so every member must come prepared to contribute to the discussion. As a result, students devote a great deal of time and energy to their assignments, and discussions often achieve a depth uncommon at the undergraduate level.

COLLEGE CAMPUS:

Deep Springs College, HC 72 Box 45001, Dyer, NV 89010-9803

ADMISSIONS:

Deep Springs is pursuing legal permission to become a coeducational college, but the legal process is lengthy. Unfortunately, we are NOT able to accept applications from women for the class entering in 2015. Candidates for admission are required to take the SAT or ACT and complete a two-stage application. The deadline for Part I of the application, which includes an official transcript and three essays, is November 7; all applications must be postmarked and/or submitted online by this deadline. If, due to unusual circumstances, you feel you will have difficulty meeting the deadline, please contact the Applications Committee.
