Clearwater College
You’ve graduated and now you’re asking yourself “Where do I go next?”. Consider Clearwater College!

Why does Clearwater College exist? It’s simple really: Our need for Jesus. The mandate he left for his followers was to make disciples of all the nations (Matthew 28:18-20). Empowered by the Holy Spirit, that is what they did, and that is what we continue to do today by Equipping for Life and Ministry.


In equipping students for life, we follow the Acts 2:42 model by seeking to devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching, the fellowship, the breaking of bread, and prayer. Students may or may not be academically strong, but degrees and certificates only matter if students are effectively equipped for life by being empowered by the Spirit.


In equipping for ministry, we focus on cultivating a lifestyle of worship to minister to the Lord, on raising up the Ephesians 4 ministry offices to minister to the Church, and on preparing laborers for the harvest to effectively minister to the world.

2021 marked 50 years of equipping for Clearwater College. This rich history is highlighted by our focus on Christ and our close-knit community. Did we mention the beautiful creation we find ourselves in as we equip for life and ministry?

Jesus told us to make disciples. That’s what we do. That’s why we exist.

Chula Vista Christian University
Chula Vista Christian University is the first modern college to be built by homeschoolers for homeschoolers! 

After spending 20 years in the college classroom, Dr. Lisa Dunne saw the cumulative effect of America’s educational dysfunction: crippling debt, Marxist indoctrination, CRT, woke politics, and the dumbing down of America’s youth.

At $1.6 trillion, America’s student loan debt now surpasses all combined credit card debt. Students are swindled into six-digit school loans they will never be able to repay. 

America's archaic educational methodology turns a blind eye to the proven developmental science of how the youngest generations learn best. Ineffective teaching leaves high achievers bored and slow learners frustrated. 

Sweeping Marxist indoctrination and secular humanist teaching have turned GenZs into anxious, depressed atheists. Tragically, 70% of America’s college students walk away from the Christian faith by the end of their freshman year.

Parents, if we give our money to public schools that literally mock our conservative values, we are empowering those voices and their mission. If we want to topple the power structure, we have to sever the financial tie.

This is why we started Chula Vista Christian University. At CVCU, our students are a name, not a number. They learn in circles instead of rows. They serve in apprenticeships that increase their marketability and real-world knowledge. And they graduate debt-free. 

Chula Vista Christian University is training up a generation of driven, resilient culture shapers who will lead tomorrow’s industries with integrity and vision.

Join the education revolution at CVCU.
