The Three Pillars of College Success
With the right friends, mentors, and missional mindset, students can finish college as leaders & resilient disciples who make disciples.
Career & Calling
Students who select a major grounded by a vision of how God made them and understand marketable fields are best prepared
Minimal College Debt
Many spend far too much for a degree so that life is crippled for many years. Learn how to reduce college cost regardless of income.
Now students don't have to start college alone, but can go with a team of other incoming Christian friends and leaders, and roommates at their future college they get to know many months before they land on campus! This has been proven to reverse the 70% faith drop-off, and catalyze growth. 10-12th grade students can prepare for exciting mission together with parents.
