About San Diego Christian College (SDC)

San Diego Christian College provides an excellent liberal arts education that thrives on making the Bible come alive. Our faculty and administration desire each and every student to purposefully seek after God in all they do, to pursue an incredible educational experience and to learn how to become the next generation of Godly leaders. The Rivendell Program is an accredited program of San Diego Christian.

SDC’s main campus is located in beautiful Southern California, where you can earn your bachelor’s degree after completing your first 16-months of college in our Exceptional College Core Program located in Minnesota!

SDC’s Minnesota Campus is located in Bloomington, a suburb of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Our striking 40-acre campus sits on a wooded bluff just north of the Minnesota River and just west of the Minnesota Valley Country Club.

Our city, Bloomington, is the fifth largest in Minnesota, offering a great balance of urban convenience and open spaces. While it is home to the country’s largest shopping center – the Mall of America – and the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, it also features more than 100 parks, and just as many lakes and ponds.
