3 Great College Search Resources for Christian Students

Are you looking for the perfect Christian college that shares your values? Check out these three valuable resources that can help you in your search.

Thinking about attending a Christian college or university? You’re in luck—this article is here to help you find just that! As I’m about to enter my senior year of high school, the “college walk” is coming very soon. Maybe this process has already started or is close to ending for you. During my search, I’ve found some great resources that can help students find the perfect Christian college for them—one that has the same values, the right distance from home, the most affordable option, and the best fit academically as well. Here are three helpful tools to jump-start your own Christian college search. 

1. The Idea of a Christian College by Arthur F. Holmes

The Idea of a Christian College is a great resource if you love fairly short reads—it’s only 106 pages but has been rated four and a half stars. The book explains the general standards and foundations of Christian colleges and why going to a Christian school may be a better idea than a public college or university. At the back, there are suggested books if you’re interested in reading about these topics further, making it a great tool for both students and teachers.

2. Focus on the Family

The website “Focus on the Family” has several resources for families and teens, including a particular article on Choosing a College. Using bible verses with Godly wisdom and advice, it covers a question that many students, including myself, have asked throughout their college search by showing the process of which you can and should think about college, plus how to make it less stressful and overwhelming. At the end of the article is a list of roughly 36 Christian colleges or universities. It also offers more resources at the bottom for those who are concerned about how your spiritual life will be affected while you’re at college and more.

3. Niche

Niche is like a dating app but for colleges and universities! The website shows a list from top to bottom of colleges, and you can add the schools to your “like” list by clicking on a heart. It also shows college ratings and reviews from real students at each school. You can view key stats like location, school type (two- or four-year), acceptance rate, net price, average SAT range, and overall grade point average, plus pictures of the college or university. Niche can also generate your chances of getting into that college when you click the “Will I get in?” link at the bottom left of the box. See—I told you it sounds a lot like a dating app!

CollegeXpress has helped me look at colleges that fit my interests by taking my profile and matching it to colleges that have the programs I'm looking for. It has the ability to connect me to colleges so I can be contacted by them and look at them more in-depth to find what's right for me. Additionally, the scholarship database is super beneficial for getting scholarships for college. Not only does it help lift the financial burden of college but it shows all the opportunities available. Overall, CollegeXpress has been very helpful to me.

To say that CollegeXpress is a helpful tool would be an understatement as it is much more than that. Before finding CollegeXpress, all I knew was that I wanted to go to college, it was going to be insanely expensive, and I felt lost. CollegeXpress has given me access to resources such as helpful tips for applications and scholarship [opportunities], and helped guide me in a direction where I feel confident moving forward and pursuing a career. CollegeXpress has helped instill a spark in me that makes me want to continue and supports me in doing so.

When I started looking at colleges in the beginning of my senior year, I was conflicted about which ones I wanted to attend based on safety, tuition costs, location, academic rigor, and prestige. Searching the internet and getting more questions than answers, I came across CollegeXpress, which made all the steps I had taken look like a minor issue. Everything was summarized and detailed, and I couldn't be more thankful and appreciative.
