About the Preparation Program*
Kentucky Christian University was established in Grayson, Kentucky, on December 1, 1919, as Christian Normal Institute. The Institute offered programs for high school, junior college and teacher preparation. The teacher preparation program was phased out in the early 1920's and revived again in 1983. Since 1983, 619 students have graduated from the teacher education unit. The mission of Kentucky Christian University is to educate students for Christian Leadership and service in the church and in professions throughout the world. The teacher education unit is a participant in the institutional mission. Program graduates are now active in leadership and service positions in the church and the teaching profession.
