Although Great Lakes Christian College exists primarily to prepare servant-leaders for the church, it also seeks to provide Christian leadership to the world.
For those who decide to serve Christ in non-church related careers, GLCC will:
- Provide an educational foundation from a distinctly Christian perspective;
- Provide an enhanced understanding of the Bible; and
- Prepare students for professional vocations.
Spring Arbor University Cooperative Program
Spring Arbor’s teacher preparation program is approved by the Michigan Department of Education for certification in Michigan . The School of Education's undergraduate and graduate programs are also accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
Great Lakes Christian College and Spring Arbor University have a formal partnership agreement that facilitates the transition of students who are working on completion of coursework toward a certifiable major or two minors into the Spring Arbor University Teacher Education Program. Students take the appropriate GLCC courses and transfer them into Spring Arbor’s program.
All Spring Arbor University courses for elementary teacher certification are provided at Great Lakes Christian College, with the exception of the student teaching seminar, which meets once per week during the student teaching semester, at the SAU Lansing Site located on Collins Road.
