IS THE SCHOOL OF PROPHETS AN ACCREDITED INSTITUTION?
The School of Prophets is designed to see lives transformed in our students and through our students. Although students study scripture and learn in a online classroom environment, the school is not an accredited institution.

The School of Prophets is a school hosted at Stairway Church, a church in Vermont VIC. More information can be found on Stairway's website here.
WILL I BE REQUIRED TO ATTEND A CHURCH WHILE AT THE SCHOOL?
The school is designed around the importance of the local church. Therefore, all in-house and online students will be required to attend A local church. They will not be required to attend Stairway as their local church, but they must attend a local church and provide a pastoral reference - as well as a leader reference.
CAN I AUDIT SOME CLASSES?
As the school is focused on intense growth and personal transformation, we place a high value on creating a safe place for our students to receive. As a certain element of privacy is required to foster this environment, we do not let the public audit our classes.
CAN I VISIT THE SCHOOL?
Online students who are interested in attending the school when they are in Melbourne are welcome to! They just simply need to contact their online small group leader to confirm the specific session that they will be present for.
***If the online student moves to Melbourne during the school term they will still be subject to all the online requirements, and will not be allowed to attend every class***
