Same Convictions. Same Distinctives. New Recognition!

We are pleased to announce that the Southern California Seminary Graduate School of Bible and Theology has been formally approved and accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) in addition to our long-standing accreditation through the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS).

We recognize the high standards of educational quality held by ATS, and we value being able to participate in the wider seminary community that it represents, joining the ranks of such respected institutions as Dallas Theological Seminary, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. We have always believed that seminary education should not be characterized simply as informative, but as transformative.

Over the past 12 years, we have seen tremendous growth in academic excellence, commitment to faithful service, sound doctrine, and ministry formation by both faculty and students alike. We are grateful for the work that God is accomplishing through SCS and look forward to being recognized as a premier choice for seminary education both in San Diego County and beyond.
