Center on Christ. Change the world.
Welcome to Toccoa Falls College! Our school is a private, nonprofit, Christian liberal arts institution located in the foothills of beautiful northeast Georgia. Established in 1907, our school’s mission is to cultivate a uniquely Christian learning community that integrates the pursuit of truth with godly character to produce graduates prepared both personally and professionally for service.
Our mission and values
At TFC, we are compelled toward excellence, committed to growth, and devoted to community. We carry out our mission and vision with passionate faculty and staff. For our students, we uniquely integrate biblical truth, academic excellence, and intentional spiritual formation within a caring Christian community.
We’re both authentic and genuine, and not only when it comes to your success in the classroom. We want to foster a culture of Christian leadership within you when it comes to you growing in your faith. Our students are challenged to grow in their faith by getting involved in small groups, regular community worship, student-faculty mentor relationships, service and outreach opportunities within the local area, and many more spiritual growth opportunities that you’d be able to take advantage of by attending TFC.
An important part of developing leaders is to provide the best academic curriculum to prepare students for the future. Toccoa Falls College has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1983. A variety of undergraduate degree and certificate programs are offered through the College’s four schools: the School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Christian Ministries, the School of Professional Studies, and the Fetterman School of Nursing. Our low 15:1 student-faculty ratio facilitates an open-door policy and excellent one-on-one advising from faculty to student. With an average class size of 13, TFC provides students an intimate and intentional experience in the classroom.
Our beautiful campus sits on 1,100 acres in the rural foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where students and visitors of the campus can enjoy views of mountain scenery while participating in the many outdoor activities the area provides, such as rock-climbing, whitewater rafting, hiking, camping, and more. TFC is also home to the historic Toccoa Falls waterfall. At 186 feet, the waterfall is the tallest free-falling waterfall east of the Mississippi River.
TFC has over 15 student-led organizations and clubs led by the Student Government Association, ranging from the Theatrical Society, which puts on theatrical performances, to the Justice Campaign, which supports and promotes social issues such as poverty, homelessness, and refugee crises. No matter what you’re called to do in life, TFC’s campus community not only gives you a great college experience but puts you in life-changing environments.
