The Janie Wash Institute

The buildings, grounds, and all appurtenances are owned by a stock company, who elect trustees for the management of the school. The object of this institution is to give solid education to all who may desire, but especially to the youth of the mountain country. There is a wide stretch of country around Middleburg which is destitute of a school of high grade. The highlands, poor in agricultural and mineral resources, are full of aspiring young men and women whom we wish to educate, and send out with cultured minds, correct habits, and good manners. These, who crave a further development of their God-given faculties, but whose means are not sufficient to enable them to attend school at remote and expensive centers of education, can find at The Janie Wash Institute every thing suited to their circumstances.

1.) The location of the school at the edge of the highland rim makes it easy of access, and also furnishes ample resources for all necessary provisions for boarding-houses. It is removed from all vain, haughty, and mock aristocratic fast life, hence pupils are never embarrassed on account of plainness of dress or awkwardness of manner, but feel happy and welcomed among a hospitable people.

2.) The expenses at this school are the very lowest of any school of like grade and equal merit. At the same time we want it understood that we are not competing with cheap schools, for it is merit that wins. There may be lower-priced schools, but none really cheaper, when the amount received, grade of instruction given, and the entire course of training is considered. We earnestly invite an examination of our claims. Come to Middleburg, see the surroundings, investigate the possibilities of our school, and examine our house, its plan, furniture, and apparatus, learn the character of our teachers and their work. You are most cordially welcomed to the home of the principal should you come.

3.) The course of instruction is not burdensome nor cast-iron, yet sufficiently full for all practical purposes. To those who desire a full course of the languages, mathematics, science, and literature, we offer to give a thorough preparation for entering any college. But our aim is to furnish a course of study adapted to the great majority of students --- those who desire to have a thorough, practical, and business education, and who never expect to pass beyond the bounds of a high school. For this class, we have arranged a course of study at once comprehensive, practical, and pre-eminently developing.

4.) The teachers have had experience with this class of students, understand their aspirations, and ambitions, sympathize with them in their struggles, and are ready at all times to aid and encourage them.

Persons wishing to locate their families for the purpose of educating their children can find no better place. Lots can be procured close to the school at $100 to $125, and a short distance from the school at a much cheaper rate. Four new two-story buildings have been erected during the past year, and others are to follow during the coming fall and winter. Come to see us and examine the claims of our village.

Our Aims

The age is one of stirring activities, of rapid action, of quick thought and execution. The demand is for young men and women of cultured minds and honest hearts, who are not afraid to take hold of the affairs of life and push them with a vim, guided by correct reason and integrity of purpose. Is is our aim to fit those who come to us for an education to meet the demands.

Man has two natures -- animal and spiritual. The animal nature needs physical development; for it is impossible to have perfect spiritual development in a frail, wrecked animal habitation. The animal nature needs food and clothing, but the essential feature for schools to notice is the curbing of those animal appetites and passons which so often blast and ruin the hopes of youth forever. The school is brought to a consideration of some part of the Bible or of some noble character, and God's blessings implored each day before entering upon the duties of the day. At this time and at all opportune times man's weakness, when left to himself without God's guidance and help, is endeavored to be impressed upon the minds of the pupils. It is our aim to inspire the soul to grand achievements, to cultivate the faculties, and thus lift it nearer to God, while endeavoring to change, curb, or totally prohibit the indulgence of the lower desires, appetites, or passions. A cultured intellect, guided by a purified heart, controlling a perfect physical development, is our highest aim and desire.
