The State of New Jersey has officially approved Geneva College Eastern Campus (GCEC), a Christian higher education program, to open on the grounds of Eastern Christian School in North Haledon, NJ starting in fall 2020.
The program is a cooperative effort between Geneva College and Eastern Christian School, two long-standing Christian institutions that share a dedication to quality academics within a biblical framework. Starting in the fall, Geneva will offer New Jersey students local access to associates degrees in General Studies, Business, and Engineering, and a one-year Pre-Nursing track at prices that rival community colleges and public universities. In addition to appealing to traditional college students, the program is also open to qualified high school juniors and seniors.
Students who earn an associate degree at Geneva College Eastern Campus can seamlessly apply those credits toward a Geneva College bachelor’s degree. The credits will also transfer to other four-year institutions. Both Geneva College and Eastern Christian School are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Approval from the Middle States Commission of Higher Education is pending for GCEC.
“Geneva has a long tradition of inspiring students to integrate faith in Christ in every subject, relevant to all aspects of life in the world,” notes Geneva College President Calvin L. Troup, PhD. “Because of that mission, we have been working with Eastern Christian School for more than two years to offer our ministry of quality Christian higher education to students in New Jersey. And now Geneva College Eastern Campus will be a reality.”
“We are thrilled with our recent approval from the NJ Department of Higher Education,” said Eastern Christian Head of School Tom Dykhouse. “This partnership allows both historic Christian institutions of learning to further their shared missions of transforming the world in the service of the kingdom.”
