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 With A 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 48% of their own education – and without taking out a single loan.

At Excel College, I experienced challenge and growth like I could never have imagined. The Core Curriculum led me into a newfound love for God and His Creation as I learned to see him and His world rightly. I came to see life as a WHOLE instead of a collection of PARTS and this laid a foundation for wisdom that will guide me for the rest of my life. My life is fueled by a passion to see and relate rightly with God, his creation, myself and my neighbor and has led me into a position where I get to partner with His Spirit in leading the next generation into the same revelation.



Recruiting / Core Faculty

The Excel College Program is exactly what I have been looking for over the last few years in regards to completing my degree. I have been able to use my previous experience as a Squad Leader for the World Race and Intern with G42 Leadership Academy to begin to fulfill my Phase 2 requirements for my emphasis in Community and Program Development. I have already had the opportunity to work alongside leaders at Excel in developing and refining programs for youth and young adults. Excel College’s holistic approach to education and living has already made an impact in my life and I look forward to the growth I get to continue experiencing here professionally and personally.



Community & Program Development, C6 Cohort

I’ve gained three important perspectives during my time in the program that drastically changed my approach toward life. Learning about education in the context of empathy helped me to critically challenge ideas that would help push me toward God’s Truth. Learning about creativity in the context of Creation helped me to find gratitude in God’s Goodness. Learning about responsibility in the context of relationships helped me to pursue God’s beauty that he intended for us.



Alumni, C2

I have found the answers to so many questions about God’s character that I never had answers to previously. I know my time in the program has been a foundation building process and that this foundation will last me a lifetime. I’ve also taken on a new perspective of what education is, fulfilling my desire to question and be curious – something I haven’t received in any other environment.
