Student Testimonies:

“Thank you Worldview for the best year of my life.”

“The people I met at the Abbey have become some of my best friends.”

“I think that since I learned so many life skills last year I was able to transition easier into college this year, and it has made it so much easier to counsel students around me.”

“This program (should you choose to attend) will be one of the hardest but best things you'll ever do. It will challenge you mentally, socially, spiritually, and even physically (shoutout to the high ropes course), but you'll gain so many necessary life skills. I can't even explain how grateful I am for the experiences I had while at the Abbey, they shaped me into the person I am today.”


“I ended up receiving a 4.0 in my first semester at college and I attribute that to the Abbey.”

“The academics [at Worldview at the Abbey] have helped me so much at college. In my current classes we have covered many of the readings we went through last year and it has made it so much easier to understand.”

“It has caused me to think Biblical and intellectually about everyday things and has helped me see the simple little lies that are woven into everything.”

“[L]earning to think deeply about what I'm reading really helped in my Literature class. It made me appreciate it way more than I would have, and able to join in the conversation a lot more as well. “

Spiritual Life

“I really really appreciate the Christian community I found there. The circle of friends that I made, the tightness of it, the willingness to be there for each other, is something that we rarely find. It showed me what Christian community was supposed to be like, and I don't know if I'll ever find that again.”

Personal Development

“The people skills I developed last year are seen every day here. I now know my boundaries with people and I know how to live with others from different backgrounds/cultures.”


“I feel like since I went through something equivalent to a freshman year at the Abbey I have the ability to counsel those around me going through their freshman year. I understand how they're feeling and I know what I had to do to deal with those emotions; I've been able to share that knowledge with my fellow students and I think that's very beneficial.”
