College History

History

Trinity Christian College was founded in 1952. By April 1956, this visionary group had drafted a constitution and incorporated the Trinity Christian College Association. The first board of trustees was elected in 1959, and they purchased the Navajo Hills Golf Course in suburban Palos Heights for the campus. After remodeling the former clubhouse and pro shop, the college opened that fall with a class of 37 students taught by five full-time faculty members. As the response of the community grew and students embraced the college's unique perspective, it became evident that Trinity Christian College was fulfilling a greater need beyond providing a solid liberal arts education for two-year students. In 1966, the board initiated the process for the college to become a four-year, degree-granting institution. The first baccalaureate degrees were awarded in May 1971.
