Briercrest Christian Academy, College and Seminary

Briercrest is a Christ-centred, Bible-anchored, and ministry-focused community that includes a high school, college and seminary. Our schools share a commitment to train students to seek the kingdom of God, to be shaped profoundly by the Scriptures, and to be formed spiritually and intellectually for lives of service.
