Students of Briercrest Christian Academy resumed classes on Thursday January 6 with Briercrest College following suit on Monday January 10. 

Students and employees of Briercrest were instructed to receive a rapid antigen COVID-19 test before returning and on the first Monday and Thursday of the semester. As an SHA approved 'Distribution Centre" Briercrest is able to provide members of the campus community with free rapid test kits. Kits were made available before students departed for Christmas break to enable pre-return testing. 

Any students, staff, or faculty testing positive with a rapid test were asked to delay their return to campus and seek a PCR test. Any campus community members testing postive after returning to campus will go immediately into isolation and seek a PCR test.

My studies at Briercrest have convinced me of the necessity of joining the work of the academy to the life of the Church.
