Message from Cairn University - Online

Cairn invites service members, spouses, and dependents to consider walking a different path! A path that will challenge them, inspire them, and prepare them for life and work. One that is centered on Jesus Christ and the Word of God, one that will give them a broad perspective on the world that is engaging and purposeful, one that will change their life and take them in a direction that will allow them to continue to make a difference in this world and the lives of those around them. We know these are important days. The need for servicemen and women of character who are biblically minded, well-educated, and professionally competent is great. We believe that a Cairn education prepares graduates to meet that need. We believe this is a way worth traveling.
