Statement of Educational Effectiveness 2020

An LTS education is a very good investment. In recent course evaluations, over 95% of the students felt that their courses equipped them to often or always teach or make use of the course material in the parish setting. Church leaders indicate that 85% of recent graduates are able, in every way or most ways, to: appropriate and to interpret responsibly the primary sources and classic traditions of the Christian faith; display the many practical skills necessary to relate the Gospel of Christ effectively to the concrete situations confronting the life and ministry of the contemporary church and in society; and show a deep understanding of, and commitment to, the liberating Gospel of Christ and the life of the church and community. Our graduates find positions: 100% of graduates from the past 3 years (2020, 2019, 2018) were employed within 4 months of graduation.
