A Revolutionary Shift in Higher Education: How Sattler College is Leading ChangeWritten by Sattler College
The modern system of higher education is fragile. With so many schools placing money over academics and prestige over truth, it’s no surprise that a growing number of people are questioning the value of college.
At Sattler, we set out to challenge this paradigm and develop a revolutionary approach to higher education. We sought to build a place that equips students through Christian discipleship and academic excellence without compromising truth or excellence.
Changing Trends in Higher Education
As the decline of Christianity in the U.S. becomes more pervasive, the foundation of an education rooted in truth is getting lost. Over the years, most schools, even nominally Christian ones, have sacrificed their core beliefs in an effort to appeal to wider audiences.
As a result, the average college student simply isn’t being set up for success. Students are accruing burdensome debt while earning degrees that are largely meaningless. Upon graduation, they have very little to show for the years they spent in college.
A New Kind of Christian College
We knew we had to build a better kind of college experience, so we reimagined what higher education could look like when Christ is placed at the center of the equation. By keeping our focus on Christ, Sattler College offers a different college experience designed to prepare ambitious students for a lifetime of impact for Jesus and His church.
Sattler’s approach is not only radically different from any other school out there, our students are on the frontlines of a peaceful revolution against the secularization of society.
To highlight the work Sattler College is doing, we developed an exciting new resource: A Revolution in Higher Education: Changing the World Through Relational Discipleship and Academic Excellence.
A Revolution in Higher Education explores:
- How increasingly secularized schools are impacting society
- The Biblical foundation for Sattler College’s curriculum
- The importance of attending a college with a Biblical worldview
- How Sattler College is establishing the new standard for Christian education
- What life is like as a Sattler College student
What Makes Sattler College Truly Revolutionary?
We hope you’ll take a few minutes to explore our newest resource, but in the meantime, you might have some initial questions about how Sattler is challenging the modern paradigm of education.
Above all, we wanted to establish a college founded upon the biblical vision of Christian discipleship that addresses the mind, soul, and heart. Our approach to education is firmly rooted in the foundations of the Christian faith—and is unlike anything else in the country.
Here are six ways Sattler College is redefining the college experience:
- A Truly Unique College Community: At Sattler College, you will be part of a like-minded Christian community and network that shares a commitment to knowing Christ and following Him with their whole lives.
- Rigorous Academic with Purpose: Our degrees are more than just a piece of paper and title. The Sattler College core curriculum is designed to be in-depth, intense, and life-changing.
- An Education That is Radically Affordable: Our tuition is 80% lower than the cost of other private colleges in the US. We are able to do this by focusing on what really matters – an education grounded in Christ.
- Located in The City Where Revolutions Begin: At Sattler, we believe in changing the world by encountering the world. By bringing the message of Christ into the city, we share, teach, and spread the Kingdom on Earth.
- Keeping Christ Central to All That We Do: We believe in building your life around the church, not vice-versa. Planning for your future is more than just career development.
- Grounded in Biblical Precepts–Not in Changing Denominations: So many aspects of our world are fleeting. By returning to Scripture and using that as our foundation, we are placing our trust in God and His ways.
As more and more young adults leave their faith behind when they leave for college, we are on a mission to defend biblical truths and inspire a new generation of Christian disciples to go out and change the world.
