Evangel College Life
EVANGEL COLLEGE IS DAY AND BOARDING SCHOOL; WHAT’S THAT LIKE?
Evangel College is a residential school. We are a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week place where students live, learn, and create their own community. Being a diverse and international community gives life to our mission. At Evangel College, we welcome students – from farms, suburbs and cities, from 5 continents, from every religion, and from every ethnicity – to be here, to live here, and to be connected to each other as part of a community that seeks knowledge and goodness together.
Home Away From Home
Coming to Evangel College has made it possible for me to achieve greatness. Evangel College is that home away from home, for me. Evangel College has surrounded me with friends who care for me. My adviser, Mrs. Ariyo has made herself available to me. With her, I have someone here who can guide me and give me a safe environment to grow while allowing me room to mature from my mistakes. She understands how much I want to succeed. Evangel College is known for many things: an undefeatable football team, school spirit, and rigorous academic opportunities. But what makes Evangel College so special to me is the community. You can’t help, but feel the warmth and openness of this place. This is my home. – Emma
WHAT’S SCHOOL WORK LIKE?
Evangel College’s academic program ensures that when you graduate you are a genuinely educated person prepared to do exceptional work at college and beyond. You learn how to write, do science, think analytically and be creative and courageous. You learn to lead, make a difference, be good, and be happy. Based on the grade you enroll in, weprovide you with a basic core curriculum and then you can choose from many elective options.
Being smart at Evangel College means challenging yourself
Being smart at my old school meant getting high grades without having to work hard. And because the work was so easy, it could be boring. But, that’s not how it is at Evangel College. Here, the work is challenging, but also more fun. It feels less like work because it is also more interesting and enjoyable. Everyone here is smart, but in different ways. Some students get better grades in math than I do. I might be better at chemistry than one student, but she might be better at physics. I’ve learned to appreciate various intellectual abilities and differences. Evangel College teaches you things about yourself and your capabilities that would be almost impossible to learn in any other environment. At Evangel College it’s impossible not to learn and it’s impossible not to be stimulated. – Ade
I’VE HEARD ABOUT WORK; WHAT ABOUT PLAY?
What do you want to do? Do you want to start your own fashion line? Are you looking to organize a lecture, a dinner, a fashion show, a concert, or a play? How about learning a new skill, such as playing the guitar? or traveling to China on a school trip with your best friends? At Evangel College, the possibilities are endless.
With so many activities for students to choose from, you are bound to find many ways to discover hidden talents, make new friends, and share your ideas.
CAN WE TALK ABOUT SPORTS?
Sports is an important part of the Evangel College community. Our sports department is unique. We have full-time professional physical educators that will help you with sporting activities, including, but not limited to: basketball, football, track and field, volleyball, swimming and diving, cross country, handball and tennis.

Evangel College Got Me To Harvard & Carried Me Through It
When I told my Evangel College college advisor, Mr. Oduntan, that I wanted to go to a school that would challenge me, he encouraged me to apply to Harvard. I wasn’t sure that I could get in. But, he told me that if I worked hard and trusted God, getting into Harvard was absolutely possible. And, he was right! I got in. Evangel College really prepared me well to excel at Harvard. I thrived at Harvard. I led several student organizations, made great friends, graduated with highest honors, and won 5 academic prizes. None of this would have been possible without the training I received at Evangel College. – Tutu
