The Ottawa Alliance for Quality Christian Education

“Building on its foundation as a Christ-inspired community of grace and open inquiry, Ottawa University prepares professional and liberal arts graduates for lifetimes of personal significance, vocational fulfillment, and service to God and humanity.”

Ottawa University, a pioneer in not-for-profit higher education for traditional, adult, graduate, and international education in ground and online learning modalities, announces the creation of a new opportunity to strengthen and expand quality Christian education.  Now in its 151st year and its 40th year in Arizona, to strengthen relationships and build partnership with Christian schools, churches, and organizations around the world, to coincide with the historic launch of its new residential campus in Surprise, Arizona, and in support of its mission, Ottawa University has created the Ottawa Alliance for Quality Christian Education.  Participation is complimentary and robust with benefits for Alliance members.

The Ottawa Alliance for Quality Christian Education is a network of not-for-profit missional organizations that are also interested in supporting a Christ-inspired community of grace throughout our institutions and the world.  Participants are faithful to strengthening the relationship between schools across the Christian education spectrum.  Members benefit from reducing the cost of Christian education, increasing enrollment at Christ-focused schools, and in encouraging enrollment at Ottawa University.
