According to Christian Universities Online (CUO), Vanguard University ranks number 33 in a top 50 ranking of Christian Colleges and Universities Exceeding Expectations that released on August 31, 2014.
CUO created the “Exceeding Expectations Value” by using the difference between predicted and actual graduation rates. CUO acquired data for the schools’ predicted graduation rates from U.S. News. To be in the ranking, schools had to meet initial standards, such as being accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) and being a member/affiliate of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).
Christian Universities Online states that their goal for this list is to “provide an alternative perspective to help parents and students make the most informed decision they can when selecting a Christian institution of higher education.” CUO seeks to do this by “focusing on how much or little they enhance the achievement of their students from acceptance till graduation.”
