Fletcher Academy School Song

(download sheet music)

Verse 1

Down in the southern mountains
Where the French Broad flows,
In the hills of North Carolina
Where the Laurel grows;
Ther’s a school where lads and lassies
Come from far and near,
Ther’s a school of closest friendship
that we all hold dear.


School of the mountains,
School of standards high,
Ideals and courage
Faith and loyalty.
School of the mountains
School of standards high;
Fletcher Academy Fletcher, Our School!

Verse 2

Where Couch Mount reaches upward
to the starry blue,
With its trails of wondrous beauty
Winding through and through,
Where we work and play and study
Doing well our part,
There is warmth and joy and gladness
in each youthful heart.

Verse 3

At our White Oak Park in summer
There in games we drill,
And in winter we go coasting
Down potato hill;
In the hills of Carolina
Full of youth's dear joys,
There you'll always find a school of
happy girls and boys.
