BBC is a good school with a great academic aspects and fantastic faculty who really care about you. The class sizes are extremely small allowing 1-on-1 learning opportunities.
Kelsey from Westfield, NY
Baptist Bible College is small, but family oriented and the people (students, faculty and staff) are very caring and friendly. The student-teacher ratio is 10 to 1, and the average class size is twenty students. This makes it possible for teachers to develop personal relationships with their students, which I greatly appreciate.
