The founders of Crowley’s Ridge College believed:

  • That God is
  • That He is our maker
  • That He has revealed His will to us
  • That He offers an earthly life of fulfillment and eternal life after death

Out of these beliefs grows a commitment to the pursuit of knowledge within a community of people who recognize God as the ultimate source of that knowledge. This commitment is expressed through the mission and goals of the College.


Crowley’s Ridge College is a private, four-year, church affiliated but autonomous, coeducational liberal arts college, providing for its students a balanced course of studies appropriate for Bachelor and Associate Degrees.
