About the Area photoBaptist Bible College & Seminary is part of a community offering the dual benefits of a low cost of living and a high quality of life. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre region of more than 500,000 people ranks among the safest metro areas in the nation. You will find life here comfortable and affordable.

Our campus in the suburban area of Clarks Summit is about 10 miles from Scranton, the largest city in Northeastern Pennsylvania and the county seat of Lackawanna County. It is an area both rich with history and focused on growing its economy in areas of industry and technology.

Superior medical facilities, AAA-level sports teams, and a range of shopping and recreational activities are among the attractions.

We are located in the public Abington Heights School District. Other districts surround us.
