Berry College is a private college in Mount Berry, Georgia.

It was founded in 1902 by Martha Berry. It's original purpose was to educate underprivileged youth from the surrounding mountains.

The "Berry Compact" is an agreement to offer 8 semesters of professional development in exchange for the student taking responsibility for the success of his own education.[2]

Berry claims that its 27,000 acre campus is the largest in the world. The campus has been used as a site for the filming of several movies, including Remember the Titans and Sweet Home Alabama.
