School Notes:

  • Barclay College is a small, private Christian college. It is an interdenominational school founded by the Friends Church, where there is a focus on "... Preparing students in a Bible-centered environment for effective Christian life, service and leadership." Our degree programs include Bachelor degrees in Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry, Music Ministry, Bible/Theology, Missions, Psychology/Family Counseling, Missions: Bi-Vocational, Christian School Elementary Education, and Business Administration. With a student to faculty ratio of 11:1 it is very easy to get one-on-one attention from your professors. Barclay has a student body of just over 100, so unlike bigger schools you are an individual and a name, not just a number.
  • Barclay College offers students preparation for several careers through its Bachelor’s programs. In some fields, the bachelor’s degree has been designed to prepare one for graduate study. The College also offers Associate degrees designed to give students a basic introduction to college education, the Bible, and general studies.
  • The College believes that spiritual growth is accelerated when one lives and studies in a community that includes a diversity of theological and cultural perspectives.
  • Barclay College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE). Formerly known as the Accrediting Association of Bible Colleges (AABC), ABHE is a national accrediting agency recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
