It forms our understanding of career calling and service to our community. We recognize the truth found in its pages and appropriate its message in our faith and culture. As we lament how far our society and educational institutions have strayed from God's truth, we believe that God's word and the Christian faith speak deeply to the issues that we face throughout our culture. Virtues Campus students will graduate with a solid grasp of God's redemptive story, the fundamental tenets of Christian faith, and a biblical worldview.

what is different about virtues campus?

Virtues Campus offers students the opportunity to merge their educational journey with the values and relationships of the local church. Virtues takes a unique hybrid approach that combines the values of private Christian universities with the low cost and local connection of community colleges. It intentionally keeps class sizes small and provides Christian leadership and mentoring through academic pastors who walk with students through every step of their educational pathway.

Academic pastors provide valuable career and academic counseling to help guide students through their program and prepare for their future vocation. The Virtues Campus curriculum trains students to critically evaluate and combat the secular worldview that they will encounter at larger institutions and in the workplace.
