Atlanta Christian College tops 1,000 students for first time

Atlanta Christian College, which has a satellite campus in Peachtree City, has set a new enrollment record, crossing the 1,000-student threshold for the first time in the College’s history, school officials said in a news release today.

The most recent cohort in Access — the school’s adult and professional studies program, began classes in September, bringing total enrollment to 1,035 students.

The adult program isn’t the only one experiencing growth at Atlanta Christian. This year’s entering class of new traditional students represents a 13 percent increase over fall 2009, and the total number of traditional students is up four percent. 

“We’re grateful for the continued growth of both our traditional and nontraditional programs,” said Atlanta Christian College President Dean Collins. “In these challenging economic times, we feel particularly blessed to have our highest enrollment in the history of the College.”

Collins continued, “I believe that our enrollment growth is a reflection of the desire of many students who want to study in an environment that is committed to both spiritual formation and solid academic preparation for lives of service to the church and the world.”
