Core Values

  • Primacy of Scripture 
    We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and must guide our teaching, philosophy, lifestyle and response to our ministry or vocational calling.
  • Biblical Worldview 
    We believe history is directed and controlled by God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—toward the accomplishment of God's purposes for all creation. Education at Kuyper College is conducted within the framework of a biblical worldview from which students can assimilate, synthesize and respond to situations of life and learning.
  • Reformed Doctrine 
    We understand and apply our faith and worldview according to the teachings of the Bible as summarized in the Heidelberg Catechism, the Canons of Dort, the Belgic Confession and the Westminster Standards.
  • Academic Excellence 
    We emphasize the importance of cultivating the mind by providing quality, Christian higher education.
  • Holistic Development 
    We strive to form world-class citizens who are academically, spiritually, socially and morally discerning, just, and merciful leaders in church and society. 
  • Caring Community
    We actively work toward a campus environment, denominationally and ethnically diverse in nature, where mentoring, mutual care, accountability and encouragement are characteristic of students, faculty and staff.
