You can carve out a unique journey for yourself—one that includes a Christian college education.
Choosing the right college can be a bit of a challenge for people. In the fast-paced and sometimes confusing nature of modern times, connecting the Bible to a servant led life is not always a clear cut and apparent path.
However, a high-quality education and a Christian lifestyle don’t have to be mutually exclusive. At Great Lakes Christian College you get both in a beautiful, central Michigan location or online. You get to experience all the seasons that God created while mapping out the path He has chosen for you.
Benefits of a Christian College Education
As a direct result of "separation of church and state" all educational institutions in the United States that have a religious affiliation are classified as private institutions. There are many advantages to attending a private college which include:
- Typically smaller class sizes
- Personalized attention from professors and staff
- In Demand areas of study
- Scholarship opportunities
- Sports opportunities
- much more..

To remain relevant in 21st century America, colleges need to understand the desire of students to have meaning and purpose in life.
Having over 70 years of being an excellent academic institution that provides students with a quality education, we have always understood that our instruction is incomplete without helping our students to discover their meaning and purpose in life. And we believe that the best place for that discovery is through a person’s relationship with the One who created that life – God.
Public education institutions do not teach spiritual development, in fact, they aren't even allowed to in most cases. For more information on this please read Does your college teach you spiritual development?

Small colleges are often the first to implement new technology, online classes, and innovation.
