Christ's College


Christ's College was founded in 1959 by Dr. James R. Graham Ⅲ. Dr. Graham’s parents, Jimmy and Sophie Graham served as missionaries in China from 1889 to 1940, so Dr. Graham grew up in China. After attending Hampden-Sydney college in America, he felt the call to return to China as a missionary to help the people he loved so deeply. Dr. Graham was a strong believer in Christian education and saw the need for a college in Taiwan based on Christian foundations.

In 1952, Dr. Graham began itinerating across the United States and succeeded in founding the Free China Christian College Association (FCCCA) and registered it in the State of California in September 1959. Later that year, he purchased land in Kuandu and started Christ's College with a four- year Christian Liberal Arts College program. The campus of Christ's College is situated on a beautiful plateau commanding a view of the Tamsui River and the Goddess of Mercy mountain range.

Dr. Graham also founded the Free China Foundation of Taipei County (which is now the Free China Foundation of New Taipei City) the legal non-profit foundation that controls Christ’s College and registered it with the Taipei County Government on September 18th, 1961. In the spring of 1966, the Ministry of the Interior on Taiwan recognized Christ's College as a religious institution and registered in the school (#205648), thereby officially sanctioning the school. Christ’s College came under the auspices of Presbyterian Church in America’s Mission to the World in 1977. In May 2012 Christ’s College was registered with the Ministry of Education making it the first government recognized Christian liberal arts college in Taiwan.
