- Educational Institutions
A 4-year baccalaureate institution offering degrees in over two dozen fields. Accreditation: Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Commission on Colleges.
We have one mission. Lees-McRae educates and inspires students to approach life and work from a creative, collaborative, and critical perspective in preparation for diverse careers and environments. Through common ambition, we maintain our focus on the needs of all learners—residential on the main campus and degree-completion through our online programs. Some are athletes, some are in the honors program, and some are working while returning to school. Regardless of where you are and where you want to go, our expert faculty and committed staff will help you get there.
Lees-McRae is best reached from Boone, North Carolina, by Highway N.C. 105 S to Route 184 (Tynecastle Hwy) which leads to Banner Elk. When you reach the stoplight in Banner Elk, turn left.
