If you’re a senior in high school, you’re probably thinking about life after graduation. Which colleges will you apply to? What will you major in? Are my grades good enough to get in?
If you’re a Southern Baptist high schooler looking at colleges, you need to consider the three colleges affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board.
All three of the schools are accredited and have active student life, spiritual life, and athletic programs.
Sherri and I were both blessed to attend an Alabama Baptist Convention college and hope to send our four children to Baptist schools.
One of the great fears of Christians parents, is their children move off to college and lose their faith or make regretful decisions. Of course that can occur anywhere, but ideally college can be a time for phenomenal academic and spiritual growth.
Here are the three schools high schoolers and their parents should consider:
Shorter University in Rome, Georgia is the largest and oldest of the three Baptist colleges.
Truett McConnell University is located on the edge of the north Georgia mountains in Cleveland.
Brewton-Parker College in the south Georgia city of Mount Vernon. Brewton-Parker also has an extension center in Newnan, Georgia (near where I live).
