Founded in 1983 as one of the original divisions of Hartland, it claims to be an "expressly Christian missionary college" and focuses on preparing students to be conservative Seventh-day Adventist missionaries around the world.
Hartland College offers bachelor’s degrees in Christian Elementary Education, Christian Secondary Education, Health Ministry, Health Education, Christian Media Management, Christian Publications Management, Bible Instruction, and Pastoral Evangelism. In addition to academic studies, the students learn practical skills including agriculture, auto mechanics, landscaping, food preparation, and the basics of medical missionary work.
It has one main building, the mansion, which hosts its administrative and business offices, cafeteria, library, and chapel. It also has a music building where music and writing classes are taught, a media center for technology classes, and a lifestyle center at which they accept health guests and train their health students in preventive medicine. Hartland College has chosen to be not accredited by any accreditation body recognized in the US.
