Established in 1913 initially as a Bible college, Cairn University has been faithfully providing rigorous Christian education for more than 100 years.  With C.I. Scofield, writer of the century-old Scofield Reference Bible as one of its co-founders, Cairn has a strong Christian heritage and was among the first few Bible colleges in the US that received accreditation to offer degree study in the 1960’s.  The University now has more than 50 academic programs and specializations on offer; and growing in a metropolitan area with a history as dynamic as Philadelphia, Cairn knows well to bring up men and women of character who are biblically-minded, well-educated, and professionally competent to serve the needs of modern-day society.  In this, the University lives out the vision of its name: “Cairns are piles of stones used as a memorial or a trailmarker; they bear witness and point the way. This is who we are.  This is what we do.”


“Cairn University invites students to walk a different path. A path that will challenge them, inspire them, and prepare them for life and work. One that is centered on Jesus Christ and the Word of God, one that will give them a broad perspective on the world that is engaging and purposeful …”
