This Fall, Briercrest Christian Academy is moving forward with the Return to Campus Plan. We want to continue to provide students with a safe place to experience a rich discipleship community and further their education in person.

In light of Saskatchewan’s successful operation according to Stage 4 of the Re-open Saskatchewan Plan  we believe that our unique setting and resources make it both reasonable and essential that we return to face to face education for our students.

We are adopting a number of temporary practices to make this possible. Because community experiences like dorm life, chapel, and student life are so central to a Briercrest education, we plan to provide these experiences on campus while prioritizing student safety according to the most recent dictates of the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

This plan for Fall 2020 is highly adaptive, and our COVID-19 committee will continue to monitor evolving best practices related to public protocols and policies for the rest of the academic year.

FAQ

  • What is the new semester schedule?

    We will run an alternate semester schedule of five two-month semesters. Students will enrol in two main classes per semester, along with a third class period for chapel, small group and other mentorship and leadership opportunities.

  • When will course registration open?

    Online course registration will begin in early to mid-August. We will circulate full information to all accepted students in early August.

  • Will the BCA dorms be open?

    Yes, dorms will be open at 50% capacity. Briercrest Christian Academy (BCA) will be able to accommodate approximately 60 students in residence.

  • Will students be able to have guests in the dorm?

    No guests or visitors are permitted in the dormitories. This includes students’ parents and community students.

  • Will international students be able to study on campus?

    Due to the complications and risks involved in international travel, we will not admit any new or returning international students for the September term. Any returning international students who remained in Canada for the summer may return to study campus. 

    Online options will be provided for international students until such a time as they are able to obtain a student study visa and travel to Canada. 

  • When is dorm move-in day?

    We look forward to welcoming our students on campus on Tuesday, September 1. If you are unable to move in on this day, please contact the Admissions team at enrolnow@briercrest.ca.

  • What will happen to choir and other classes that involve singing?

    Until further notice, with a few exceptions, we cannot permit group or choir singing in Briercrest buildings due to the extra risk associated with the spread of COVID-19. Choir classes will be cancelled until further notice. An exception will be made for worship teams under SHA guidelines.

    Anyone can sing outdoors with 4 meters spacing (without masks) or 2 meters with a mask.

BCA is such a great place because it is connected with Briercrest College and Seminary. I have been able to build relationships with college students that I've met through house church who have positively impacted my life.
