During the summer semester, you will attend classes and internships at the Focus on the Family Headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO and reside in town, just a few miles away.

We have contracted living area from University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) for your time at FLI.  UCCS is located just a few miles south of the Focus on the Family headquarters where FLI classes and internships are held.  The suite-style residence halls have private bathrooms, showers, kitchens and other apartment amenities.  The residence halls will provide all your basic necessities from linens to kitchenware.  All you are left to bring are you clothes, toiletries and desired school supplies. 

**All students are required to live in FLI's residence facilities and to participate in its meal plan.**
