Where Dreams Come True


The historical Boggs Academy, founded in 1906, was a preparatory boarding school for young African Americans in the United States. The Presbyterian Church USA owned and operated Boggs Academy until its last graduating class in 1984, when public schools began desegregation. Thus, the Church had fulfilled its mission. 


This was the dream . That African American children would be educated at a time when black children were denied education because of segregation. Boggs Academy was one of the most prestigious, accredited, educational institutions providing a quality education for people of color. Not just in rural Burke county, but across the country and as far away as Africa. The school stayed operational until 1986 producing black educators, engineers, politicians, entertainers, religious leaders, doctors and more. Ask any one of these successful African Americans and they will give credit to the foundation that Boggs provided and motivation in themselves that Boggs instilled.
