Kuyper College-Bringing God's Grace Into Today's Culture
Kuyper College is a Ministry-Focused Christian Leadership college that educates and trains Christian leaders for service through the integration of high academic curriculum and biblical Reformed worldview.
Founded as a Bible Institute in 1939, and accredited by various regional and national agencies, Kuyper College offers Bachelor and Associate degrees in 17 academic majors. These ministry and professional majors together form one of seven foundational elements that make Kuyper a very unique college. At Kuyper we call the sum of these elements 'TheKee,' or The Kuyper Education Experience.
Perhaps, it is because of all we offer our students that we often hear from many of our 2,700 alumni. As present-day Christian leaders, serving in more than 50 countries throughout the world, they tell us that, indeed, Kuyper College is very unique and continues to make a major difference in their lives and in the lives of others.
Kuyper College is located in a beautiful, tranquil and semi-pastoral campus 8 miles from downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan-one of the top 50 metropolitan areas in the United States.
