Praying for the men and women in the military is just one of the ways that BCF supports the military.

Victory Media, the premier media entity for military personnel transitioning into civilian life, has named The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville to the respected Military Friendly Schools® list. The 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

“Inclusion on the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® shows The Baptist College of Florida’s commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students,” said Sean Collins, Vice President at Victory Media and a nine-year Navy veteran.  “The need for education is growing and our mission is to provide the military community with transparent, world-class resources to assist in their search for schools.” 

The Military Friendly Schools® website features the list, interactive tools, and search functionality to help military members find the school that best suits their unique educational goals. The 1,868 colleges, universities, and trade schools on this year’s list exhibit leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.  These schools have excellent programs and policies for student support on campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility, and other services to those who served within the military.

Now in its fifth year, the 2014 list of Military Friendly Schools® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 10,000 schools nationwide approved for VA tuition funding. The survey results that comprise the 2014 list were independently tested by Ernst & Young LLP based upon the weightings and methodology established by Victory Media. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.
