We would like to invite you to visit RPTS. Your visit schedule may look like this:
9:00 – Arrive, visit the facilities, and meet with President York*
9:45 – Worship with us in the chapel
10:30 – Sit in on a class or two
12:15 – Join us for lunch, where you can interact with students and faculty

Your visit should be done around 1:00, depending on which classes you would like to sit in on. If you are coming from a distance, we can provide overnight accommodation. If you come from a distance to visit and then enroll to study with us, your first credit is free!

*President York greatly looks forward to meeting you personally and praying with you as you seek to discern God’s leading.


We welcome students from denominations and independent/non-denominational churches who meet the academic entrance requirements.
