We Don't Believe ...

  • that college educations — or college graduates — are manufactured.
  • that conformity is the goal.
  • that students start at the same places in their educational journeys — or that they have the same needs, challenges, gifts, and talents.
  • that face-to-face teaching and mentoring by faculty members is outdated or irrelevant.
  • that academic excellence and Christian humility are at odds.
  • that students come to us as students only.
  • that learning — or faith — is dry, stuffy, or stale.
  • that wisdom exists without integrity.
  • that "personal responsibility" is a tired cliché.
  • that leaders can emerge without the experience of service.
  • that giving means losing.
  • in the boundaries of artificial conventions.
  • that freedom exists without responsibility.
