Start with no loans
End with no debt

Innovation didn't just stop at our educational model. After all, what's the point of education if you can't afford it? See how we've made a better way.

Student Loan Debt Is A Crisis In Our Nation

Renowned author and psychologist Jordan Peterson once compared student loan debt to indentured servitude. It’s a burden that has crippled many from the millennial generation. How can you walk into a life of flourishing when you are crippled by debt? Generation Z is entering university age and facing the same challenges.

We've Come Up WithA Better Way

We’ve developed a 3-way partnership model that allows Excel College and it’s partners, the student, and their parents to share the responsibility for the cost of tuition, room, and board. Through allocated time for work/earning a wage in both the Core and Practicum phases, students will graduate having funded at least 35% of their own education – and without taking out a single loan.

Student Testimonial

“Any time I talk to my peers in traditional college, they almost always bring up paying off their student loans. Meanwhile, I’m not only able to make money but also save money due to Excel’s unique tuition model.”

What Parents Are Saying


My wife Missy and I always believed there was a better way for college, and Excel is it. The no debt, work while you [attend] school, Christian community immersion is exactly what we were looking for. Our son is on the autism spectrum and needs to be "encouraged". Excel is doing just that and giving him an opportunity he would never have at a "Christian University".

In just a few months, my wife and I have seen our daughter grow immensely in her relationship with Christ, become more responsible for herself and her future, work harder, and love more. We’re thrilled with how Excel is nurturing her in her young adulthood and with how she is seizing the opportunities God has opened for her.



C8 Parent

Our daughter has grown exponentially in her leadership skills, her communication skills, and in her personal spiritual growth because of Excel's passion and pursuit to mentor and disciple the students. Excel's unique educational model is a refreshing option to higher education because the goal truly is to help students build a life, not just a living. We have watched our daughter turn into a mature, considerate, honoring adult with compassion towards others, a servant's heart beyond her years, and leadership skills that most adults long to have.

I love Excel's unique educational model because it prepares my son for real life. Learning, applying what he learns, time to work and make money, mentoring and accountability to live out a full life with purpose in Jesus.

In just a few months of my son Ben being at Excel College, I can see he has gained more confidence. He is even more engaged in conversation and in critical thought. He went to Excel for community and personal growth, and I know he is surrounded with solid mentorship and peers who intentionally pursue growth with him, and for him. From a parent's perspective, I can sense that he's exactly where he needs to be.

Our daughter came to Excel because it appealed to her creativity. At Excel, she has found that the context to learn and grow while living and working in a discipleship setting was just what she needed... During her time at Excel, she has flourished! She has gained confidence and poise and learned how to engage ideas in a humble way that keeps truth and Christ at the center while honoring the person or author across from her. Excel is training our daughter to think deeply, to love well, and to serve humbly. It has exceeded our expectations all around!



C8 Parent

Our daughter... was drawn towards this idea of community and discipleship while earning a degree and made the decision to begin Excel immediately following the finish of her trade school. She is thriving. She is learning so much through critical thinking... [and] is also growing as a whole person. We now have another child who has been captured by this school concept and will join his sister in January at Excel. We are very excited for his journey to begin and expectant of all the Lord will do in both of them, and through both of them in the years to come.
