Piedmont College educates students to become successful and responsible citizens through rigorous academic instruction in the liberal arts and professional disciplines. Learning opportunities are provided through undergraduate and graduate programs offered at various locations. The institution emphasizes high ethical standards and respect for diversity.
The primary goal of Piedmont College is to be one of the best small liberal arts colleges in the Southeast. Piedmont pursues that goal by adding extra value to the basic college experience. For those students who are academically talented, Piedmont provides enrichment and challenge beyond the classroom. For those who are not as well prepared academically, the College provides extra academic assistance and encouragement designed to turn their potential into achievement.
Although the rules of guardianship have changed, and young people today demand more independence on the American college campus, Piedmont still feels strongly about instilling a sense of moral responsibility in its students. The ethical and spiritual values of the Christian tradition are not merely cherished and preserved, they are actively examined. The Piedmont community is committed to the compatibility of these values with a diverse and inclusive community that cherishes academic freedom.
