A Message from the President’s Cabinet

As our staff and faculty prepare for the beginning of the winter semester next week, we are looking forward to the start of classes and praying that God would continue to work in and through our college and seminary students this academic year.

Considering the new time-limited guidelines announced on January 3 from the Province of Ontario, the President’s Cabinet of Heritage College & Seminary recently met to establish a plan to begin the winter semester starting January 11, 2022.

College Residence will Remain Open

Starting Saturday, January 8, college students living in residence will be welcome to begin moving back to campus. Before moving into their assigned apartment, all residence students will be required to take a rapid antigen test.

College and Seminary Classes will Begin In-Person with Online Option

Faculty members will be reaching out to students over the next couple of days to share their plans for the upcoming semester. If a student has questions surrounding their class, they are encouraged to email their professor to receive guidance and direction.
