    Our classes are taught by Christian faculty members who are well trained in their fields. They care not only about what you learn in class but also about who you are today and who you will become in the future. They chose to teach at Shorter because they care about students and about sharing the love of Christ; it’s a difference you’ll notice from day one.

    Our Admissions Counselors are here to answer any questions you may have about Shorter and the application process. Please feel free to contact your Admissions Counselor at any time during the application process. We are happy to help!
