Proof Positive: 2017 Placement Rates Announced

January 22, 2018

smiling graduatesYou’ve heard us talk a lot about the quality of a Cedarville education. Now, here’s additional proof to support what we’ve been telling you:

In a recent survey of our 2017 graduates, we found that an amazing 97.5% of the graduating class was either employed or in graduate school within six months of commencement. That’s well above national averages and evidence that our students are well-prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation. Employers seek out Cedarville graduates for their academic preparation, work ethic, and character.

In fact, for the past five years, our placement rates have consistently topped national averages, as shown in the graph below.

And, not only are our graduates prepared to obtain good jobs in desirable career fields, they are being equipped to serve God and share the message of the Gospel wherever He leads them. That’s what truly sets Cedarville apart.

When Christian Kids Attend Secular Universities

January 19, 2018

Your student is in the middle of making one of the most important decisions of his or her life – where to attend college. You may be weighing many issues: cost, location, academic programs. But perhaps the greatest factor you need to consider is this: How will this institution affect my student’s spiritual walk? 

Dr. Steve Henderson, founder and president of Christian Consulting for Colleges and Ministries, has done extensive research on what happens to Christian students when they attend secular universities. In an article published on the online Christian College Guide website, Henderson cautions parents about what students will face in a secular university classroom and presents his research findings about the impact on students' faith. Having faced this issue in his own family, he encourages parents to consider the true cost of having a student attend a secular school, and not just the price.

With daily chapel, a required Bible minor built into every academic program, biblical integration in all courses, and intentional discipleship opportunities, your student’s faith will be strengthened at Cedarville. We are committed to equipping students to use their vocation to impact the world for Christ, wherever He leads.
