Learning, Doing, Growing

Southwestern Adventist University believes in the development of the whole person: body, mind and spirit.

Opportunities Abound

We are more concerned with the quality of our many small programs than the development of bigger ones. As such, the educational focus is personal, and students have many opportunities to flourish.

An International Flavor

With students from more than two dozen countries, Southwestern offers the young person an opportunity to meet and interact while learning how the rest of the world lives.
