New Partnership Serves High School Students

by Brandon Best, Public Relations Writer

More high school students will benefit from a new online education partnership between Cedarville University and Sevenstar Academy. The new agreement will allow students to select from a dozen academic options that can count as both high school and college credit.

“Sevenstar Academy has been very innovative about offering educational options to Christian schools and wanted to partner with us because of our quality academic reputation and online course variety,” said Janice Supplee, vice president for enrollment management and marketing.  “We’re excited to partner with them and support their approach to online college courses.” 

Sevenstar Academy, based in Cincinnati, provdes online courses for middle and high school students around the world. Sevenstar offers more than 90 courses for students in grades 6-12, as well as more than 100 dual credit courses in partnership with Christian colleges and universities around the country.

“We both want to reach students for the Kingdom and equip them to serve the King,” said Dr. R. Mark Beadle, CEO of Sevenstar Academy. “Our partnership with Cedarville will expand the reach of both institutions and allow us to serve more students with a quality Christian education.” 

The new partnership will also serve to further Cedarville’s international recruitment efforts as it continues to promote diversity among its student body. 

“This partnership attracts students from overseas who may never have heard about Cedarville otherwise,” said Supplee. “International students bring a global awareness to campus, which we prioritize. We want Cedarville University to reflect the international body of Christ.“
