Welcome to California Preparatory College (CPC). CPC’s administration, staff and faculty combine to provide the Inland Empire with an affordable, quality, private college education based on Christian values.
Many students prefer a private or faith-based educational experience, but find it economically burdensome. Others wish to stay close to home and ease into college, but still receive a high quality education. CPC is here for those students who appreciate more professorial contact, and want to begin their higher education in a more personally nurturing program.
CPC institutional learning outcomes are the overarching learning outcomes that reflect CPC’s mission statement. They serve as a guide in the development of student learning outcomes for programs, courses, and administrative services.
The following institutional learning outcomes reflect the understandings and skills that students will obtain at CPC.
Upon completion of the CPC program, students will be able to:
Analyze, synthesize and evaluate various forms of information
Demonstrate effective oral and written communication
Demonstrate their commitment to service through participation in activities that serve the needs of individuals
Propose resolutions to current societal challenges in the context of Christian principles
Understand the components that contribute to personal spiritual maturity
Understand the dynamics of personal spiritual maturity
History of CPC
CPC began operations on July 1, 2007 in Redlands, CA. For two years prior to CPC’s opening, its founders operated a small ESL and certificate program in the Inland Empire. For several years prior to CPC’s opening, a number of educators, business people and investors had noticed a large void in value driven faith-based education and were considering the most cost effective remedy. The development and inauguration of CPC is the culmination of their collaborative effort. The 2017-2018 academic year represented CPC’s 10th year of operation. CPC is pleased that its mission is making a difference in higher education as each semester more students participate in its benefits and the college continues to grow.
California Preparatory College exists to provide affordable higher education in a Christ-centered, diverse learning environment, focusing on rigorous academics, mission service and life skills while preparing student continued education, job placement and service to humanity.
Our Private Education Philosophy
It is the philosophy of California Preparatory College that students deserve high quality, nurturing, private, faith-based education offered at an affordable price. Those ideals are realized in our focused curriculum, optimal student-teacher ratios, highly qualified personable professors, comfortable facilities and dynamic social and spiritual environment.
The economy of this education is achieved largely by not funding a large campus, dormitories, food services or research programs, and through the application of our efficient educational model.
Because we believe that spiritual values are essential for the health of both individuals and society, CPC provides spiritual activities that encourage spiritual growth and the pursuit of service to God and humankind.
