“We’re designed for working adults. Our program is an accelerated hybrid – it’s the best of traditional classroom and online work. We want to reach students in North Alabama who would like to have a private school education and can’t afford it. When we study the Bible, we employ academic standards to do that, but we come from the starting point that the Bible is God’s Word. We want them to be informed and to be wise.” – Dr. Doug Walker
