How Admissions Works
Every one of our educators brings real-world experience to the classroom so that graduates emerge ready to make a positive and lasting impact in their fields of work and the community around them.
As a faith-based institution, our courses are taught through a Christian lens to harmonize God’s teachings with the practical skills that students need to be successful in their academic and professional careers.
