Research shows that nearly 95% of teens in America have access to a smartphone, meaning that the objections and challenges against Christianity they encounter are easier to find and more sophisticated than ever before.* Not only does this leave students vulnerable to influence from dangerous ideas, but it also makes it increasingly difficult for students to know what is true, let alone know how to actively and winsomely share their faith with others.

Ratio Christi College Prep (RCCP) chapters are an ideal place for high school students to learn how to navigate all the information they encounter from a Biblical worldview. They will discover the historical, scientific, and philosophical evidence for Christianity; be equipped to effectively respond to questions about and objections to the claims of Christianity; and become confident ambassadors of Christ. Through intentional engagement with the biggest questions of life
Students are equipped to stand for truth and change the culture for Christ.
Each chapter typically meets weekly, covering topics from “Does God exist?” and “Did Jesus really rise from the dead?” to “How do I share the Gospel?” and “How do I talk to my LGBT+ friend?”
RCCP chapters can be established at a local school, homeschool group, in a church, or even with students from around the community. While the emphasis of RCCP is primarily on apologetics and evangelism training, apologetics functions best within relationship, so we encourage Chapter Directors to also provide opportunities for relationships to flourish through mentoring, evangelism outreach, and fellowship times.
