Barclay College says

Barclay College was founded by Quaker settlers in 1917 and welcomes students from all evangelical faith traditions who seek a solid biblical foundation for their lives and vocations. Here the focus is on "... Preparing students in a Bible-centered environment for effective Christian life, service, and leadership." Our current degree programs include Bachelor degrees in Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry, Music Ministry, Bible/Theology, Missions, Psychology and Family Studies, Sports and Recreational Leadership, Bi-Vocational Missions, Christian School Elementary Education, and Business Administration. The Barclay College School of Graduate Studies offers a Master of Arts degree in Transformational Leadership. Because of the favorable student to faculty ratio (11:1) and a student population of 250, there is a strong sense of community on campus and students receive individual attention from professors. At Barclay College you are an individual with a name, not just a number on a spread sheet.

Faculty at Barclay College offer students rigorous, scholarly training that informs both mind and spirit. Nearly all faculty have held successful tenures in their field of study and are gifted practitioners. Professors at Barclay genuinely care about their students and spend time with staff and students outside of the classroom because of their commitment to the value of community. Barclay College is truly a rare find.

We believe that these aspects make Barclay College a model of academic excellence. Haviland is a small town and often becomes a place where students can come and experience a uniquely transforming encounter with God. Distractions commonly associated with college life are not present and there is time to seek God and grow in a daily walk with Him. Spiritual stretching and growing happen on a daily basis in classes, chapel services, extra-curricular activities, and student life and community.

As Bernard of Clairvaux said, "There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is curiosity. There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is vanity. There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is love." At Barclay College you will learn to serve God and be equipped to serve and love those in the world around you.
