Voorhees College is a private, historically black, coeducational, liberal arts, baccalaureate degree-granting institution affiliated with the Episcopal Church. The College, located in rural South Carolina, serves traditional and nontraditional students primarily from the state of South Carolina and the southeastern region of the United States. The aim of the College is to offer each student an intensive general educational experience coupled with professional education in the value-centered liberal arts tradition. The College excels in instruction in liberal studies, arts and sciences and a wide range of pre-professional and professional disciplines. The College seeks to produce highly qualified graduates who combine intellect and faith in their preparation for strong professional performance, pursuit of life-long learning, betterment of society, and an abiding faith in God.

From its founding in 1897, Voorhees College has evolved into a leading four-year liberal arts college accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and affiliated with the Episcopal Church and The College Fund/ UNCF

Most memorable about Voorhees history is the story of its Founder, Elizabeth Evelyn Wright. She was a black woman in her early twenties who, in spite of betrayals, arson, jealousies, threats of violence, and weariness from wandering, persevered and founded a school in Denmark, South Carolina, on April 17, 1897
