There is no better way to experience life at Barclay College than by visiting campus. That is why we would like to invite you to our fall preview event, Discover BC, October 24th and 25th. Come and stay in the dorms, visit classes, tour campus and catch a glimpse of what Barclay College is all about.

At Barclay College we are committed to providing you a Christ-centered education that will prepare you vocationally and spiritually to follow God’s calling on your life. All dorm students automatically receive our FULL-TUITION SCHOLARSHIP to help them attend a private Christian College and graduate with little or no debt.

This FREE event is open to all high school and transfer students and their parents. We will gladly provide meals and housing at no charge to everyone that comes. We do have limited housing available for parents on a first-come, first-serve basis. To reserve guest housing please email or call the Admissions Office and we will be glad to make those arrangements.

A schedule of the event and more details can be found below. You can register for Discover BC here. Please join us for this special event October 24th and 25th.

We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!

Barclay Sale 2018

Join us Saturday, October 6 at 9 AM for the 85th Annual Ladies Auxiliary Auction. Every year the Alumni Committee runs a concessions table in the back of the gym serving snacks and drinks. It takes a lot of manpower to make this run smoothly. The money raised through the concessions helps provide for the student Christmas raffle as well as keeping the cost low for the alumni banquet in May.

Following the soccer game, which starts at 6 PM, there will be an alumni soccer game.

For those that are able to attend the auction this year, we are looking for some volunteers who would be willing to give an hour on October 3 to help run the concessions table.  Would you be interested in serving in this way? All help is greatly appreciated. Contact or call 620-862-5252 ext. 13 with a time you would prefer to work. The concessions table will open at 9am and will close when the auction ends (usually between 6 and 7pm).

See you at the auction!
