Who May Apply?

The Berkshire Institute for Christian Studies welcomes students who confess Jesus Christ as Savior and who desire to serve Him in the Church and in the community, whatever their vocational goals.

The Institute is intended for those who desire Christian discipleship and biblical training beyond high school that leads to a more robust biblical worldview and that offers direction for spiritual growth. Applicants must have earned a high school diploma or a General Equivalency Diploma (GED).

Academic Considerations

The Institute requires the satisfaction of at least two of the following criteria:

  1. A minimum high school grade point average of 2.6 (based on a 4.0 system).
  2. A ranking in the upper 40th percentile of one’s high school graduating class.
  3. A minimum combined average of 1000 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or 20 on the American College Test (ACT).

What About Not Quite Meeting the Requirements?

In cases where individuals do not quite meet the stated admission standards, the Administration may find justification in a student’s record for granting provisional acceptance. As a result, limitations may be placed on the student’s academic load and
extracurricular activities.

Our staff would welcome the opportunityto get to know any students interested in a year of discipleship in the BICS program.
