Barclay College was founded by Quaker settlers in Haviland, Kansas, in 1917 as the Kansas Central Bible Training School and was formally known as Friends Bible College from 1925 to 1990. The college’s main campus is located in south-central Kansas on US Highway 54/400 between Dodge City and Pratt. This location combines the advantages of a very friendly, safe, small-town environment with easy access to larger-town services about ten to twenty minutes from campus. The campus itself is an attractive, open campus of twenty acres and eight major buildings. The newest addition to the campus is the Ross-Ellis Center for Arts and Ministry, with exceptional, state-of-the-art theater and classrooms, completed in 2018. A new Wellness Center is under consideration by the board.
The mission of Barclay College is to prepare students in a Bible-centered environment for effective Christian life, service, and leadership.
