*Your Story Matters

At Vanguard, we’ve come up with the perfect mix: unbeatable academic training, a caring community where lifelong friendships are born, a beautiful campus near Southern California’s beaches and cultural attractions, and a strong spiritual foundation that puts Christ at the center of it all. We go beyond scholarship, beyond the classroom, and beyond the expected—equipping you to live the story God has for you.

“More than anything else, our students look more like Jesus when they graduate than they did when they arrived. We take seriously our role to help students become more fully who they are in Christ and to live that identity out to its fullest."

Dr. Willem H Dogterom Professor of Pastoral Studies
