Horizon College & Seminary was established in 1935 and continues as a pioneer of Christian Higher Education. Today we are Canada’s first competency-based Christian leadership college, located in the beautiful prairie city of Saskatoon, where we are creating a multi-denominational prairie hub to offer distinct programming for students preparing for leadership in a variety denominations.
And we are excited to announce that our brand new facility will be operational in fall 2020!
As an investment in our student community, our ministry relationships, and a source of sustainable revenue, our new facility will support Horizon and our denominational partners as we continue to thrive into the future.
So, what is Competency-based Education (CBE)?
CBE is a model of education that bases its curriculum on actual roles in society and then assesses students’ ability to perform those roles. It bridges the gap between academic learning and real-world work.
Horizon’s approach to CBE is course-based. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of those who practice ministry in the field, and our course assignments emphasize skills and knowledge that are transferable to the real world of Christian life and ministry.
