Endorsement Programs

Our endorsement programs offer a cross-discipline study that enables select students to organize their graduation requirements around their core interests.

 

How Do Endorsement Programs Work?


Valor’s endorsement programs are designed to matriculate students who have combined rigorous academic coursework with hands-on experience.

The speed of learning is accelerating faster than ever before. In response, a growing number of top colleges are prioritizing applicants with real-world experience who have a clear idea of the questions they want to answer and the problems they want to solve.

These students know what they want to study in college and post-graduate programs and are eager to use their knowledge and experience to transform the world for Christ.

 

Program Overviews

In addition to core academic coursework, endorsement programs require meaningful investment in co-curricular activities, service projects, and a capstone project. Students can work toward a major or a minor, and upon graduation, receive special recognition and a unique diploma. A commencement cord is bestowed upon those achieving a major. Students are encouraged to apply for their endorsement area of interest during their sophomore year. See each individual endorsement program page for additional information. 

If you feel called to apply, find more information and the application document in the portal.
