High Point University has quickly expanded in many ways. The University has increased student enrollment over a 100% in the past five years, the campus has more than doubled in size, and the academic standards continue to receive national attention. This has all happened while the University has remained true to its core values of a holistic education focused on God, family and country. These core beliefs are why High Point University is successful. But, we could not have grown and transformed in such a dramatic way without the support of our students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends.
