Summer academic camps logoThere is still time to register your student for one of Cedarville's summer academic camps. These camps are a great way for them to learn more about a college major they are considering … all while having an unforgettable summer experience, full of new friends and great memories!

At Cedarville’s summer Academic Camps, students spend a week on campus exploring a career field that interests them. They can choose from art and design, athletic training, criminal justice, engineering, forensic science, geology, history and government, molecular biologymusic, nursing, pharmacy, psychologytheatre, worship, or writing!

While your student explores a career field, camp faculty will challenge them to make their vocation their calling. They will be challenged to consider how their gifts, skills, and interests can make a difference in this world for Christ. We've packed the schedule with fun activities, too, so students return home with new friends and great memories! 

Deadlines for the summer programs are approaching and some camps are already near capacity! Find out more about how your student can apply and register to become a part of the Cedarville University summer experience today!

If you’re a homeschooling parent, you probably have specific concerns when considering where to send your son or daughter to college. Our president, Dr. Thomas White, understands. He's a homeschooling dad.

Watch the video and you’ll discover how at Cedarville, your student will join many other homeschool students on a vibrant Christian campus.

Parents Measure ROI for Their Students' Cedarville Education

March 22, 2019

Diploma on pile of moneyAs high school seniors and their parents sit down to finalize a college decision before the May 1 deadline, one topic is nearly always part of the discussion: cost.

While many universities — including Cedarville — are taking intentional steps to make a college education more affordable, parents are increasingly looking at job placement rates in order to weigh an institution’s benefits against its costs in an effort to decide whether or not a considerable investment is worthwhile.

Cedarville's placement rates continue to be impressive. In a six-month postgraduation final destination survey, 98.4% of Cedarville's class of 2018 reported being employed or in graduate school during that time period. This is not a one-year anomaly: Cedarville's five-year average is 97.3%.

These placement results are well above the national averages reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, which has reported an average of 88% over the last five years. But don't just take our word for it. Read the Q-and-A in today's post, originally published in an issue of Cedarville Magazine, and see what parents are saying about their children's experience at Cedarville.

P.S. If your student has been accepted to Cedarville for fall 2019, be sure to pay your reservation deposit soon to ensure his or her place in the incoming class!
