Heartland Christian College is located in an intentional Christian community in rural northeast Missouri called Heartland where a small student body ensures a strong faculty/student ratio, enabling every student to receive personal attention both inside and outside the classroom. Students have the opportunity to apply concepts introduced in courses as they participate in the life of an active non-denominational church which is the center of this community. Along with coursework, students are encouraged to work part-time in one of the areas available within the Heartland community, thus growing in good work ethic and relational skills. HCC students are encouraged to grow into well-rounded individuals with a commitment to living with a biblical worldview as they grow closer to God.
