Calvary University continues to be recognized for excellence in Christian education.
BestSchools.org awarded Calvary University with an award this week, ranking CU #2 in their “Best Online Christian College” category.
According to the BestSchools.org site, “The schools on this list are ranked according to three criteria:
How well does this school demonstrate its overall Christian character? Some important signs of a good Christian college or university include full accreditation with the relevant theological accreditation agencies (regional and national), an active and productive campus ministry presence, confessional status (i.e., teachers are required to sign a Christian doctrinal statement), and a good record of religious liberty for Christians and traditional Christian values.
For the online component, we consider whether the school has “anytime access” lecture archives, readily available technical support, affordability, variety of degree options, and the number of 100% online degree programs.
Academic prestige includes name recognition, high admission standards, accreditation status, low student-to-teacher ratio (less than 20-to-1), the graduation rate, future admission rates into advanced programs, and hiring rate of recent graduates.
Overall, the effort is to identify the most helpful indicators that a school is sincerely Christian in their culture, academic in their studies, and offers legitimate online options.”
Congratulations to all faculty and staff for your hard work and dedication.
