Westminster Seminary California is called to educate those entrusted to us—to know the word, to love the word, and to be able to preach and teach the word.
Westminster Seminary California (WSC) has a beautiful campus in the hills of Escondido, 30 miles north of San Diego. From this strategic location WSC has prepared more than 1,100 graduates who are serving as pastors, church planters, missionaries, teachers, scholars, counselors, and leaders worldwide.
As students live, learn, and grow together in their knowledge of Reformed theology and love of the Lord, they will experience what we have always believed and practiced at Westminster California—that iron sharpens iron—that students learn best face-to-face in the classroom and students confirm what they believe peer-to-peer, in a community of faith.
“I can think of no better way to further enrich our experience than to bring the families and singles together in one place, where we might more closely share our lives together; where I might knock on a neighbor’s door for a cup of flour or for a little help on a difficult Hebrew translation.”
"I have made some of my closest friends while attending WSC, usually while studying in the library. It seems like the library is the place most of the students congregate, and when people want to take a study break, we socialize. My other close friends have come from living together."
"My interaction with my fellow students has been great. Because of the small size of the school, I have gotten to know most of the students, and it is always exciting and encouraging to hear how the Lord is working in their lives and the paths on which He is leading them."
For the Future of the Church
"We believe the church is best served by those who know and love God’s Word.
Through my 43 years of teaching, I have become convinced that
better churches make better Christians,
better pastors make better churches,
and better seminaries make better pastors."

CURRENT STAGE: PLUMBING, ELECTRICAL, & DRYWALL
As the fall turned to the “winter” (San Diego temperatures are in the mid-70s in early January), student housing construction crews have shifted from framing to the installation of plumbing and electrical in all buildings. With the plumbing and electrical work nearly complete, some buildings have begun to undergo insulation and drywall work. These steps will allow for interior finish work in the spring, including installation of flooring, appliances, and lighting. + read more
