Summit Christian College in Gering has been named first on a list of the top 50 Most Affordable Small Private Colleges under 2,000 students.
The ranking, generated by AffordableColleges.com, looked at eleven different criteria, according to President David Parrish. The criteria cited Summit’s low tuition, low student debt, and low student-to-faculty ratio. Parrish says the criteria makes sure the rankings are based not only on affordability but the quality of education provided for the dollars spent.
Summit Christian College, established in 1951 at Platte Valley Bible College in Scottsbluff, currently offers five areas of instruction for those studying for a career in the ministry. Parrish says the ranking is “a feather in our cap” and can be a tremendous tool for recruitment.
