The value of Graceland is rooted in our holistic educational experience. We help students not only survive in their transition from high school to college, but to thrive. The skills acquired at Graceland are applicable not only in the work force, but in higher levels of education as well.
When I think about the value of Graceland, one of the things that really comes to mind is the very intentional design of our educational experience, holistically. Not only in the classroom but outside the classroom. And we have intentionally designed every aspect of that student experience to make sure that students not only survive their transition from high school to college, but thrive while they're here and set themselves up for meaningful lives after graduation, in a supportive, caring environment, with faculty that are dedicated to student learning.
I've seen a return on investment in my Graceland education in several ways. The first of which happened when I went to graduate school. I had no problem competing with students that came from other schools around the country, big schools, small schools, elite schools, and then when I got into the workforce-- the same thing happened. And I found that what I had learned at Graceland, the skills, the social interaction were applicable in the workforce as well as at graduate school.
Our schools made a choice that as a high economic institution, it wants to lean its financial aid toward academics. If you're a good student, you can come to Graceland, more affordably than you can go to any public school that I can think of outside of the junior college world.
