Real Life.

Hiwassee College is a place where learning comes in the classroom, but more importantly it comes from real-world experience. You may be surprised how little you see the desk in front of you. Learning is more than hands-on, it’s real life.


We believe in community. This is a place where you will find lifetime relationships not only with your peers, but even your instructors. Many of our students and professors have similar goals, beliefs, and hobbies, creating friendships that go beyond the classroom.


With every corner you turn, you will find adventure. Athletics your thing? We have almost every sport available and are always looking for talented new athletes. More of the outdoorsy type? Here, you may find yourself rafting down a river of rapids, hiking a challenging trail, or simply taking in the majesty of the beautiful countryside.

Hiwassee College is an institution with a rich heritage in education, a strong community, a foundation of faith, and an unbridled spirit of adventure. Learning is different here. It’s founded in faith and forged in excellence.
