Schreiner University

Overview

Named after the Texas Ranger and “Father of the Hill Country” who provided the original land and endowment for the school in 1923, Schreiner University is a product of the soil in which it was grown. Captain Charles Schreiner immigrated to Texas as a teenager and lost his parents soon after he arrived. Through hard work and commitment, he built a livestock, retail, and banking empire in Kerr County, the heart of the Texas Hill Country. His story, like those of so many other Texans, is one of courage, strength, hope, and resolve. Though the odds were against him, Captain Schreiner had a vision of a vibrant and diverse Texas Hill Country that included a school educating young men—and later young women—in the military tradition. Schreiner Institute also grew out of the vision of the Presbytery of Western Texas. In the tradition of the denomination, the Presbytery of Western Texas recognized the people of the Texas Hill Country required a quality education in order for their minds and, therefore, their hearts to be liberated and truly free. As early as 1906, records indicate the Presbytery intended to start a school in Kerrville. In 1923, working alongside Captain Schreiner, it saw that school—Schreiner Institute—become a reality. Out of the minds and hearts of Captain Schreiner and the Presbytery of West Texas grew the maverick educational institution known today as Schreiner University.
