Calvin’s Educational Framework

What a Calvin education really gives you

Learning that is deep, broad, and dynamic

At Calvin, you will learn how to think as a Christian—how to understand complex issues from a Christ-centered perspective, how to defend your beliefs, and how to express your creative solutions in a global culture.

Faith that is lived out courageously

Your Christian faith is deeper and more resilient when you ground it in biblical and theological truth. We welcome questions that seek understanding and challenge you to find your purpose in acts of justice, mercy, and love.

Citizenship that is grounded in Christian love

As followers of Christ, we use our hearts, minds, talents, and resources to be attentive and creative citizens of this world. At Calvin, you’ll develop cultural intelligence, become a faithful caretaker of God’s creation, and serve others with sacrificial compassion.

Vocation that is tuned to God’s call

A Calvin education will prepare you for more than a job that pays the bills. It will equip you with the habits, skills, and virtues that you need for a life that’s a response to God’s faithfulness.
