Why study in Banner Elk?

Banner Elk is a stunning town nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. By choosing to study here, you’ll have jaw-dropping scenery on your doorstep, as well as all the amenities of a much larger US city.

The town’s hiking, biking, rafting, and rock climbing opportunities make it the perfect spot for outdoor enthusiasts. Thrill-seekers can also enjoy panoramic views of Grandfather Mountain from the Mile High Swinging Bridge.

After a long day of studying, relax at one of the town’s tasty restaurants or craft breweries. There are also plenty of galleries and theaters to visit at the weekends.

The neighboring ski resorts of Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain are only a stone’s throw away. Charlotte Douglas International Airport is just over two hours away by car.
