Short description

Southwestern Christian College, located in Terrell, Texas, was founded in 1948, emerging during a significant transformation in American higher education. As a historically black Christian college, it was established with the mission to provide quality education within a Christian context, primarily to African American students, at a time when opportunities for such education were limited due to segregation.

Today, Southwestern Christian College is a small yet vibrant institution, with an enrollment of 88 students. It offers both Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees, with a strong focus on Liberal Arts and Humanities, and Biblical Studies. These programs reflect the college's commitment to a holistic education that combines academic rigor with spiritual growth.

In athletics, Southwestern Christian College competes in the NJCAA Division I, Region 5, and its sports teams are known as the Rams. The college's mascot, the Ram, symbolizes determination and leadership, qualities that Southwestern Christian College endeavors to instill in its students. Set in a town environment with campus housing available, the college offers a close-knit community where students can thrive academically and personally. The college's commitment to its students goes beyond the classroom, aiming to nurture individuals who are well-rounded, socially responsible, and prepared to make a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
