What is Right Start?

Right Start is a summer academic program that helps students improve the skills necessary for success in college. Students learn these skills in daily Right Start seminars and then put them into practice in a real college credit course. The Right Start Summer Sessions begins June 13 and concludes July 1.


What College Course will I take?

Right Start students are enrolled in Christian Life and Thought. This three semester credit course is part of the Bible minor required of all Cedarville students. The course is also transferable to any college or university. Enrollment is limited and registration is completed on a "first come, first served" basis.

What happens once I complete the program?
