A Word about Our Mission

Today, students leave college with an average student loan debt of about $30,000. Only 53% of entering college freshmen graduate within six years, and almost half of college sophomores show no significant improvement in learning compared to when they entered college. Upon graduation, students often have no idea what they want to do with their life and, sadly, they discover that only about half of their graduating class can even find a job.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

·         What if there was a way for your student to discover their life purpose first and then build a college education around that?

 

·         What if they could earn a college degree debt-free in 3 years or less?

 

·         What if your student could maintain control over their education by earning dual credit for homeschool and college – without having to use the community college system?

 

·         What if your student could be 55% more likely to find a job upon graduation because they were spiritually mentored and prepared to pursue their God-given calling?

 

Would you be interested in learning more?

 

You are invited…


Please join us for a special presentation, "Straight Talk about College" with

James Glenn, the Regional Admissions Director for CollegePlus.

 

If you or your student, age 14 and up, are considering dual-credit, college, and beyond, RSVP now to attend this dynamic seminar on transforming higher education and the huge opportunities available for today's motivated students. 

 

This event is free but it will forever change the way you think about college.
