College Preparatory Institute

 Your school is invited to the campus of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Monday, May 20 - Friday, May 24, 2013, for the first annual ORU College Preparatory Institute. Aspiring 9-12th grade students from around the world will come together during this life changing week to prepare for their future success as they are challenged to grow and develop academically, socially and spiritually.

The College Preparatory Institute, CPI, is a realistic first glance into college life. Academically, CPI consists of an exciting week of accelerated, hands on learning in a fun, interactive workshop style learning environment. Students have the opportunity to choose two non-credit “majors” (i.e. broadcasting, pre-law, engineering, communications, etc.) and will learn from ORU’s renowned professors. Each major will consist of five, two hour classes, Monday through Friday. Students will also be given one hour each day to work on assignments for the following day’s classes. The College Preparatory Institute will culminate on Friday with an assessment, including practical applications for the future and a certificate of completion.

At CPI, students will have the privilege of experiencing the dynamic atmosphere that is ORU. Each day, students will participate in group activities that will nurture friendships with other students and groups from around the world. Various elective activities and special events such as athletics, games, and opportunities to hear from dynamic speakers will give students an idea of why ORU college students’ lives are completely transformed while attending school here. 

Being immersed in the powerful ORU culture is one of the most unique opportunities that CPI provides. Each day, students will be challenged to deepen their relationship with Christ. At CPI, there will be many opportunities for all of the schools to grow toward Christ together, regardless of different backgrounds, denominations or cultures. 

This week will be a relevant opportunity to develop your students academically, socially and spiritually. We look forward to you joining us as we chase after God’s dreams for this world together, at ORU’s College Preparatory Institute.
