Preparing Future Leaders through Affordable Education

We believe that education and theological studies should be attainable for students, no matter their budget. Our tuition and fees are kept as low as possible through a variety of efforts, including endowment-based giving, a small but impactful faculty, and cooperative partnerships with other higher-education institutions.
