Redefining Christian Higher Education for More Than 110 Years
In Fall 1906, The Childers Classical Institute, offering 11 primary and secondary grades, opened its doors with 25 students enrolled for classes.
Over the next century-plus, the school’s offerings and population continued to grow, resulting in Abilene Christian University: a leader in Christian higher education with more than 86,000 graduates located in every state and 109 countries.
No matter how big ACU gets, its mission remains the same: to educate students for Christian service and leadership throughout the world. By enrolling in an online graduate program, you can elevate your personal and professional self as part of a close-knit community.
21st Century Vision
By the year 2020, Abilene Christian University will be the premier university for the education of Christ-centered global leaders.
Pursuing your graduate degree online through ACU not only helps us realize this vision, but propels you to become a sought-after leader in your chosen field.
"Part of equipping you means we must ensure that you receive a world-class education; one that will open doors throughout your life, allow you to move in and out of all kinds of circles of influence, earn a place among the leading experts and scholars in your field, and create the kinds of opportunities in which you can truly make that real difference."
