Joshua Preview Days


If you’re considering attending Joshua, participating in one of the Preview Days is your best chance to get in. Not only do you get to stay in a dorm with current students and ask them questions, you’ll attend classes with them, participate in activities, hear the evening speaker and experience authentic Joshua life. Also, it gives the staff a great chance to get to know you and see how you’ll do in the Joshua environment.
