BEAVER FALLS, PA (December 20, 2019) – Geneva College has received official approval from the State of New Jersey to offer higher education programs at Eastern Christian School in North Haledon, New Jersey. Offering classes with a Fall 2020 start, Geneva will be providing Christian higher education within the state of New Jersey for the first time. The program is a cooperative effort between Geneva College and Eastern Christian School, institutions that share a dedication to quality academics with a Biblical foundation.

The credits will also transfer to other four-year institutions. Both Geneva College and Eastern Christian School are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

“Geneva has a long tradition of inspiring students to integrate faith in Christ in every subject, relevant to all aspects of life in the world,” notes Geneva College President Calvin L. Troup, PhD. “Because of that mission, we have been working with Eastern Christian School for more than two years to offer our ministry of quality Christian higher education to students in New Jersey. And now Geneva College Eastern Campus will be a reality.”

“We are thrilled with our recent approval from the NJ Department of Education,” said Eastern Christian Head of School Tom Dykhouse. “This partnership allows both historic Christian institutions of learning to further their shared missions of transforming the world in the service of the Kingdom.”
