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.
Dr. White recently recorded a video in which he highlights what makes Cedarville University homeschool-friendly. Watch the video and you’ll discover how at Cedarville, your student will join many other homeschool students on a vibrant Christian campus. He or she will be challenged with rigorous academics and encouraged through daily chapel, Bible minor courses, and intentional discipleship to grow deeper in their faith.

We've recently released the spring issue of Cedarville Magazine – Chapel: The Heartbeat of Campus – and we'd like to share it with you!
This issue of Cedarville Magazine celebrates the impact of chapel, or more importantly, how God has used this extraordinary hour of the day to transform lives for His glory and Kingdom purposes. You'll discover why we consider chapel to be the heartbeat of a Christian university, and why we have determined to maintain our commitment to a daily gathering required for all undergraduate students. Chapel is the pivot on which each of our students’ 1,000 days on our campus turns. This is the place where we remember who we are as the people of God, joining together to praise Him and learn from His Word, and to build each other up in the faith.
As you read through the pages of the magazine, be encouraged by how your student will learn and grow through the chapel experience at Cedarville University.
P.S. If your student has been accepted for fall 2019, be sure to pay your reservation deposit to secure his or her place in the incoming freshman class!

Cedarville University is privileged to care for the spiritual growth of some of the best university-aged students on our planet. We take this charge very seriously.
One of the elements in the spiritual growth dynamic here at Cedarville is seeing to it, as best we are able, that each student connects with a local church. The years of their academic training could leave them separated from any type of effective fellowship with the body of Christ, except for what takes place within the boundaries of our campus. Chapel is exciting and distinctive to a Cedarville education, but it does not take the place of the local church.
We are blessed to have many great churches in the greater Miami Valley region. The top 10 churches (based on number of Cedarville students who attend) are:
- Apex Community Church, Dayton
- Calvary Baptist Church, Xenia
- Cornerstone Bible Church, Xenia
- Dayton Avenue Baptist Church, Xenia
- Emmanuel Baptist Church, Xenia
- Fairhaven Church, Dayton
- Grace Baptist Church, Cedarville
- Northside Baptist Church, Springfield
- Shawnee Hills Baptist Church, Jamestown
- Southgate Baptist Church, Springfield
We are blessed with many more churches as well. We will continue to impress the importance of the local church upon our students, with the goal of seeing them grow spiritually while they attend Cedarville and then watching them naturally step right into a solid local church wherever they land in the years ahead. To God be the glory!
P.S. If your son or daughter has been accepted to Cedarville University, be sure to deposit early to reserve your student’s place in the fall 2019 class. Deposits are already at an all-time high, and we expect another record-setting freshman class this fall!

At Cedarville University, we take our mission statement very seriously: “Cedarville University is a Christ-centered learning community equipping students for lifelong leadership and service through an education marked by excellence and grounded in biblical truth.” Not only is there biblical integration in every course, but all students complete a Bible minor as a part of their academic program. Always among our students’ favorites, Bible classes stretch them to think about God, His Word, and His world in whole new ways.
In today's post, you'll learn about the different courses that make up Cedarville's Bible minor, and discover the difference it can make in your student's life.Read More »
