Because faith and truth do matter.
Every college or university education is centered on something: a philosophy, a worldview, a set of core beliefs. Choosing a school that has the right things at the center will make all the difference.

Because an Education Should Have Value
As the most affordable Christian college in the region, Cairn tuition is $7,000 less than our peer Christian institutions, while over 85% of our students receive financial aid.
At Cairn, students receive an affordable education built around a core of biblical values and truth.
At Cairn, my eyes have been opened to a new way of learning, one that focuses not on passing a test, but on building new information into your character. More than anywhere else I visited, this University is vibrant and passionate about translating faith in the mind to faith in action.
I used to be afraid of questioning, but my education at Cairn has shown me the importance of confronting the questions that arise as I consider how my faith relates to my understanding of the world. In this worldview focus, I have found a freedom to examine ideas without fear or defensiveness.
The character of the professors definitely has a deep influence on me, molding my mind to resemble the mind of Christ. I glean from them week to week, not only through their Christ-centered view of the subjects they are teaching, but also through the character shown in how they interact with me as a student.
Cairn’s commitment to integrate teaching and experiences has helped me realize the necessity of keeping one’s life from being compartmentalized. The world needs men and women in the workplace who are not only professionally competent, but also have a heart for God. As I become more conformed to the image of Christ, I know I’m also more capable of engaging in intentional and productive service to Christ in the church, society, and the world.
Whether I’m studying sociology, ancient art, mathematics, or philosophy, the person of Jesus Christ seems to always be at the center of the conversation. Probably as many substantial conversations around the lunch table find their roots in Core Curriculum classes as in theology classes. I always enjoy hearing how my friends’ classes have sparked some spiritual fire in them.
Having a biblically integrated worldview will not only give me a work ethic that employers are looking for, but more importantly will give me the desire to live intentionally with every person I come in contact with.
As a student at Cairn, I’ve become a part of a community of professors and students who are seeking to live godly lives. I am constantly being encouraged to strive for excellence and live a life of integrity.
Through intercollegiate athletics at Cairn, I have been stretched to exemplify Christ on the court, and the community atmosphere has been a daily encouragement.
