Be Supported + Encouraged to Grow

At Crown College, you won't just take classes. You will be part of an uplifting community, where you'll be encouraged to grow into the whole person God designed you to be.

I have the opportunity to not just be in a caring community, but a community that fosters the same values and faith. There are so many different perspectives here from students and professors, and it creates so many opportunities to grow.

Being at Crown makes you want to stay at Crown for the rest of your life; but being at Crown also gets you excited for what God is preparing you to do after college, too.
