Beyond Academic Excellence

“If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.” -G.K. Chesterton
Excellent work hardly ever starts out fully baked! Keep at those goals—even if you feel like you might not be getting anywhere.

Beyond Academic Excellence President Haye often reminds students that academic excellence means nothing without spiritual growth. 'If you graduate from PHC with a 4.0 GPA but without having grown in your relationship with Christ, we have failed.'
