Our program is designed to equip students with biblical practices that can be adopted into the normal aspects of their lives at home and school; creating a foundation for long-term discipleship to Jesus.

We Value Safety. Our highest priority is keeping your students safe. There are several ways we seek to prioritize safety: the use of nametags, the buddy system, and the presence of Summer Institute Staff. All individuals associated with the Summer Institute will wear name tags to indicate they are a part of this program. We also utilize the buddy system: no student should ever be alone. Students are not allowed to be alone with a member of the opposite gender. If guys and girls are together, there must always be 3+ students in the group. Furthermore, guys and girls are not allowed to be in the opposite gender’s dorm at any point in time. Finally, the Summer Institute prioritizes safety by having staff present at every activity, session, mealtime, and time in class.

We value Presence over Phones. We believe it is very important for students to be fully engaged and present throughout the week. Thus, students are allowed to have their phones, but we ask that they keep them up at all times.

We value Meaningful Connection over Unintentional Time Together. We value the content being taught in the discipleship sessions as well as in the academic tracks. Therefore, students are asked to be on time for all sessions and academic tracks. Not only will this honor the time and energy the speakers spent preparing the content, but this will also allow students to deeply engage with the content being taught.

We value Encouragement over Discouragement. We recognize the power that words hold. Thus, all Summer Institute participants are expected to use their words to encourage others, rather than to put others down.

We value Curious Questions over Assumptions. At the Summer Institute, students will come from a spectrum of different faith traditions. We desire to create an environment where students feel the freedom to ask curious questions instead of making assumptions. Staff members are eager to discuss and answer any questions that students have, and thus will make themselves available to do so!
