Health and Safety
One of the aspects we love most about Faith is our safe location. Ankeny’s total crime rate is 44% lower than the national average, and the violent crime rate is 57% lower than the national average. We take the health and safety of our students very seriously at Faith. We understand that parents across the world are placing their children into our care.
Here are some of the ways we take care of our students:
- Routine safety patrols
- An emergency notification system that notifies students, staff, and faculty through text messaging
- Newly installed card-required entry to residence halls and campus buildings
- Full-time Registered Nurse on staff
- Newly renovated fitness center

In addition, a daily crime log is maintained in the Security Office. This information is required by law and is provided by the Faith Security Department.
