Personalized Learning Options

The Institute’s innovative distance learning programs provide study tracks and/or certificate and degree pathways that fit the adult learner’s individual schedule and learning style. St. Gregory Nazianzen Orthodox Institute utilizes the Individualized Distance Learning delivery model, which combines personal choice, quality, convenience, and flexibility. The components of this model include Rolling Enrollment, Advanced Placement, FlexStart, Independent Study (or Individualized Learning for Motivated Students), and College Level Testing. The Rolling Enrollment policy allows a prospective student to submit his/her Admissions Application to St. Gregory Nazianzen Orthodox Institute at any time. The Institute will then review the Admissions Application and notify the applicant as to the admission decision within a few weeks after submission. Advanced Placement allows the student to transfer credits from other recognized institutions (subject to review and approval by the Registrar’s Office) and/or to earn credits upon the satisfactory completion of Advanced Placement examinations. FlexStart Scheduling allows students to choose and register for non-sequential fast-track courses. Independent Study rewards the diligent student by allowing him/her to enroll in a course, complete the requirements, and move on to the next course at his/her own speed or pace. College Level Testing allows students to translate life experience into academic credit. Ultimately, the Institute makes it possible for the student to manage a family, job, career, and/or other responsibilities while studying. You do not have to put your life on hold to complete your degree at St. Gregory Nazianzen Orthodox Institute.

It is with profound joy and immense gratitude to our Lord for His manifold blessings that we welcome our virtual visitors from across the globe to the St. Gregory Nazianzen Orthodox Institute website. ... more info >

When anyone is disturbed or saddened under the pretext of a good and soul-profiting matter, and is angered against his neighbour, it is evident that this is not according to God: for everything that is of God is peaceful and useful and leads a man to humility and to judging himself.
