What our Students Say…

“I cannot say enough about how this program prepares a Christian school teacher or administrator to work within a Christian school. Not only are the professors building into you and increasing your knowledge, but you have the opportunity to rub elbows with other Christian school professionals that are doing the same thing you are. It gives you a chance to share exciting things and challenges. Iron sharpens iron.”
