In the 2010-11 school year, AG schools saw a 1.2 percent increase in headcount enrollment. Since 2000, AG institutions have experienced a total increase of 11
percent in enrollment.
"Our AG schools stress academic excellence, spiritual transformation and lifelong connections," says G. Robert Cook Jr., president of the Alliance for Assemblies
of God Higher Education. "We train leaders for both the church and marketplace."
Cook notes that AG schools offer more than 150 different academic programs. Last year, 34 percent of AG graduates majored in degrees that provided training
for church, parachurch or missions ministry.
The number of students focusing on ministry has increased 27 percent in the past 15 years. Each student at an AG school is required to complete at least 18
hours of Bible and/or theology courses, Cook says.
Fellowship-affiliated schools are seeing increased ethnic diversity. Last year, ethnic minorities constituted 32 percent of all students enrolled.
