How to Become the Person God Wants You to Be

Challenge your intellect and critical thinking skills with real-life application of knowledge.

Since our founding in 1873, Spring Arbor University has helped people become critical participants in this world. Even though we are an academic institution, we are not solely focused on knowledge acquisition. Rather, SAU prepares students by challenging their intellect and critical thinking skills with real-life application of knowledge. In addition, we  share a passion to fuse that with an unapologetic commitment to Christ as our perspective for learning, help our students own and grow their faith, and bring that together in a manner that impacts the world for Christ and His kingdom.

Attend a Top 10 Best Value Christian University.

Spring Arbor University has been voted 10 of 50 Best Value Christian Colleges and Universities in the country by Christian Universities Online. This award is based on the highest degree of personal attention (student-to-faculty ratio), selectivity (acceptance rate), financial assistance (% receiving financial aid), and student satisfaction (retention and graduation rates).

Foster disciplined habits within a community of believers.

We invite you to join our healthy community of believers and learn not only how to acquire knowledge, but how to use that knowledge in Christ-honoring ways. Throughout your educational journey, you’ll be in a constant process of formation. Learning with fellow Christians offers ample opportunities to foster disciplined habits and skills that promote godly character. You will encourage and be encouraged to live a Christ-centered life with the virtues that form you and your classmates into the people God wants you to be.
