History

Kuyper College was founded in 1939 as the Reformed Bible Institute with a three-year curriculum. In 1970, after changing its curriculum to a four-year program, the Michigan Department of Education authorized the school to confer four-year Bachelor's degrees. Consequently, the name changed to the Reformed Bible College (RBC). On April 21, 2006, the RBC changed its name to Kuyper College after Abraham Kuyper (1837 - 1920). Kuyper was Prime Minister of The Netherlands from 1901 - 1905, and a Dutch Calvinist theologian, considered the father of Neo-Calvinism, who wrote and spoke widely.

Throughout its history, the focus of the college has always been the development of students for Christian leadership service.

All students graduate with both a Bible major and a professional area major. The student to faculty ratio is 15 to 1.
