LOCAL SERVICES

Briercrest College and Seminary is in the peaceful, rural village of Caronport. The neighbouring city of Moose Jaw is 20 km east of Caronport on the #1 Highway and provides many of the services you will need - particularly if you are not living in a dorm. Here's a sampling of what you can find in Caronport and Moose Jaw.

Moving to Caronport as a village resident (non-dorm) (External blog)

Caronport is a unique school town with education opportunities ranging from Kindergarten to graduate degrees. It is also a rural village with the peaceful and sometimes challenging advantages of being located on the prairies. One resident blogged about the things she wished she knew when she first moved to Caronport. We share it with you hoping it will help to ease your transition.
