FOUNDED IN 1912, Jarvis Christian College is a historically black college affiliated with the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ. Its mission is to prepare students intellectually, through academic programs that promote excellence in teaching and learning; socially, through student-centered support programs that encourage positive and constructive communication among peers, faculty, and staff; spiritually, through programs that stimulate spiritual growth and worship; and personally, through interaction that fosters self-development and maturity.

The mission further seeks to prepare students for professional and graduate studies and productive careers, and to function effectively in a global and technological society. Jarvis offers more than 10 teacher certifications and more than 15 minors and bachelor’s degrees with a rural setting and small class sizes that are assets for the students. With a 16:1 student-faculty ratio, Jarvis students receive the attention they deserve from professors and instructors.

The 243-acre Hawkins, TX campus is located in an attractive wooded area near Longview and Tyler, some 100 miles southeast of Dallas and 89 miles southwest of Shreveport. Determined to appeal to the needs of student athletes and supporters, the College has 13 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Division I teams that play in the Red River Athletic Conference in baseball, volleyball, softball, basketball, cross country, soccer, bowling and track and field.
