    School Overview

    Quaker settlers established the Kansas Central Bible Training School in Haviland, Kansas in 1917, and for most of the twentieth century, the school operated as Friends Bible College. Then in 1990, recognizing the achievements of the first Quaker theologian, Robert Barclay, the college was renamed Barclay College. Though transitions and name changes have occurred, Barclay College remains true to its Christian-based heritage and resides on about seventeen acres in the small town of Haviland, Kansas. Barclay College also maintains an online campus for distance learners. 

    With a focus on Christianity, Barclay College strongly encourages all students to devote a portion of their academic career to service. Service is measured in units, and Barclay expects students to earn at least one unit of service per semester. To facilitate a service connection, Barclay College’s website links students to Christian service opportunities extending from the Haviland community to distant locations as far away as China and Brazil.

    Barclay College acknowledges the needs of learners by sponsoring diverse learning programs. Undergraduate students at Barclay can choose from bachelor’s and ssociate’s degrees, along with a host of minor options and two certificate programs. Furthermore, students can complete personal enrichment courses or opt to enroll in an adult degree completion program.
