About Carver College

Like most historically black colleges, Carver College was established to meet the need for an institution of higher learning for those desiring biblical and theological training. Since God opened the doors of the institution in 1943, more than thousands of men and women have graduated. These graduates are serving God around the world in countries like Kenya, Ghana, Jamaica, and of course, the United States.

At Carver College, the Scripture comes alive as God uses Christ-centered faculty members in the development of His servants. Students have the opportunity, through instruction and practical experience to study a wide variety of issues as they develop a Biblical worldview. At Carver, you will be afforded the opportunity to participate in summer missions trips to places like Kenya, South Africa or the Caribbean. 

Our school motto, "Training to Transform," we take seriously our calling to train and equip our students for a lifetime of ministry. The training Carver students receive first transforms their own hearts and then equips them to go train and transform the hearts of others.

If you desire to receive this type of training, Carver is the college for you.

Remember that opportunities of this nature are rare and precious. If they are missed cannot be retrieved. We therefore invite you to make use of the opportunity to become a part of the growing family of Carver College. Here at Carver College you will enjoy a “family” atmosphere, one composed of fellow Christians from all walks of life and various ethnic groups and cultures.
