Graduation Rate

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

Worst school ever! Do not let me repeat do not send your child here! My daughter was hit by another teammate and NOTHING was done about it! They wanted to tell me that they are taking care of it.The students consequence was that she would miss a track meet! The head track coach was very unprofessional! I had previously reported situations that had occurred and nothing was done! This place is a hot mess! Christian school? Don’t believe the hype! Stay far away! There are so many other school choices out there. I HATE that I sent my child there. But things will change! Just don’t do it! Go somewhere else.....anywhere else .
