Scarborough College lays a foundation on which God-called men and women can build a lifetime of ministry by equipping them to think biblically, reason truthfully, and share God's Word effectively. The college's rigorous academic program is rooted in Scripture and geared toward cultivating godly character and deploying students to proclaim the Gospel to the lost and make disciples of all nations.

The School of Theology provides foundational theological education for the ever-widening circle of Christian ministry. This training is designed to prepare the student for effective pastoral ministry and other ministries of the church and to correlate the content and practice of the Christian faith.
