Academic Success Centre
What Is It?
The Academic Success Centre exists to help students succeed in their preparation for ministry leadership. Vanguard offers care to the whole student. While our Campus Pastors offer care for emotional and spiritual wellbeing, the Academic Success Centre’s purpose is to specifically help the student in regard to academics by way of tutoring for research, writing, and time management, as well as provide for accommodations when that is warranted.
