A Geneva education is grounded in the truth of God’s Word in every aspect of student life—academics, athletics, and activities.

Faculty, administration, and staff aim to provide a transformational experience that fully develops students’ abilities and challenges them to be all that God created them to be. Our low student-faculty ratio means more personal attention and guidance in all areas of life.
There’s a lot going on at Geneva. We offer high-level athletic training and competition with 19 NCAA Division III varsity athletic teams for men and women.

Our Christian Perspective
Geneva College is governed by the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America. We believe the Holy Bible is the foundation of all that is right, good, and true. We require that faculty and staff are professing Christians. They care about the development of our students’ minds, hearts, and spirits.
We don’t have a litmus test to determine if incoming students believe what we believe, so people of many denominations and doctrines study at Geneva. Our conversations are honest, frank, and often eye-opening.
Academic options abound
Geneva College is recognized for its academic strength. Our most popular majors include Biology, Business, Computer Science, Elementary & Special Education, Engineering, and Nursing. Other majors of note include Aviation Business Management, Business, Communication Disorders, Cybersecurity, Music, and Student Ministry.
At Geneva, you can also work with your advisor to design and pursue an Independent Major that’s just right for you.
