“You may be called to be a pastor or missionary—or even the best physicist or economist that God has ever put on the earth. But whatever you do, get the knowledge of God as the foundation for whatever God calls you to.”
Dr. R.C. Sproul, First President


Dr. Sproul’s founding vision for the school was that it would be faithful for generations to come. We endeavor for long-term faithfulness through keeping a small faculty and maintaining the freedom to shape our curriculum, ensuring that every student receives a true liberal arts education with a biblical and theological emphasis. Therefore, RBC is not an accredited institution.

As a testament to the quality of an RBC education, a number of accredited seminaries have agreements with RBC, allowing for students to complete their seminary degrees in six years, instead of the traditional seven, upon the completion of their degree at RBC.
