There are a ton of reasons to
homeschool. Diminishing quality and resources in the public
education system. The desire to instill values and build
character into your kids. Greater opportunities for hands-on
education and one-on-one teaching. We understand
homeschooling families because our goals are the same as
yours. Almost one out of every four of our students have
come from homeschooling families. And many of our
faculty and staff homeschool their own kids.
this is our worldview. It is our mission. It's one we take
seriously. So much so that we have one of the largest
endowed scholarships in the nation available only to
You've spent 18 years pouring into your children. That
investment of time, treasure, and resources will pay amazing
dividends in the lives that they lead. Sending them off to

Every one of our freshman engineering students builds their
own 3D printer. They aren't just using commercial 3D
printers in projects. They build their own...during their very
first semester of college. A couple of years ago, LeTourneau
set the Guinness Book of World Records record for the most
3D printers printing simultaneously. Guinness thought it was

campus. Our students were simply doing what they do:
building, working, and putting their brilliance and
ingenuity to the test.
is a place where our Christian faith means putting action
behind our theology. That happens through daily class
devotions, prayer, Bible study, and an incredible chapel
program. But more than that, it happens through mission
trips and in the late night hours in our dorms where
Christian community is strengthened one relationship at a
time. Putting action to faith also means using our ingenuity
to solve world problems, here, now. It means inventing new
technologies for foot-powered water wells being used in
Senegal, West Africa. It means inventing and producing
low-cost wind turbines currently being used in Mongolia to
bring electric power to people without. It means helping to
develop new wheel chair technologies durable enough to
handle the rough terrain of Kenya.
We believe that these are exactly the types of experiences
and opportunities that you want for your student.
