Mentorship and Community

With a low student-to-faculty ratio (10:1), CSBS&C affords students an excellent opportunity to interact with professors. In addition to their academic achievements, professors have spent many years in ministry as pastors in North America, and as international missionaries in places like Croatia, Portugal, Hungary, Scotland, and South Africa. We encourage our students to take advantage of the opportunity to interact with faculty by providing a weekly Journey Group which focuses on discipleship and mentorship.

We also place a high value on community. This is experienced through several weekly gatherings in which students, staff, and faculty break from their courses and come together to fellowship and worship in unison. In addition to this, students are able to participate in intramural sports.

Furthermore, with affordable housing options on campus, CSBS&C provides students an opportunity for independent living within community support.

High School Dual Enrolment Program

The Dual Enrolment Program at CSBS&C is offered to grade 11 and grade 12 students. Grade 11 students are permitted to enroll in one 3 credit-hour course per semester, and grade 12 students are permitted to enroll in up to two 3 credit-hour course per semester. Thus, upon completion of college courses students may receive both high school and college credits.
