Our Credo

College for the Neighborhood

There is no greater need in small communities than for the citizenry to invest in the prosperity of the community.  At the College for the Neighborhood, we believe that educating students to find their calling, teaching them to innovate, and empowering them to serve are the primary components for transfiguring community.  We believe that this education can be offered at a reasonable cost, can be both employer and employee friendly, and can serve to facilitate economic growth in communities.  We believe that hyper-local education is the key to healing the pains our society experiences.  For the full story, we invite you read our blog.
