CCBC is pursuing national, recognized accreditation of our institution through a faith-based accreditor, The Association for Biblical Higher Education.
We are engaging in this process to open more doors for our students, to improve our program, and to demonstrate CCBC’s quality by being accountable to an association of fellow Christians who are dedicated to faithful, biblical higher education. In short, we are pursuing accreditation in order to keep carrying out our mission, as the ability to do so without accreditation has become increasingly difficult.

The Board of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa (CCCM) made the decision to list the Murrieta Hot Springs property for sale in October of 2020. Our goal as a school has been to be transparent during this process and disclose all information that we have to our students, their families, prospective students, and alumni.
We have been guaranteed use of the property through May of 2021 and will finish the spring 2021 semester here at this location.
If the Murrieta Hot Springs campus is sold, our leadership plans for CCBC to move to our original campus at Twin Peaks, near Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernardino mountains.
Currently (as of March 2nd) the campus is still listed for sale, no sale has been agreed, and based on what the leadership of CCCM has told us, we are planning to continue at the Murrieta Hot Springs campus for the summer and fall of 2021.
