We are Colegio Biblico — Somos Colegio Biblico

Colegio Biblico was founded in 1945 out of a great need seen by Harland Cary and his wife, Frances, while on their way to serve as missionaries in South America.

It has since grown due to continuous blessings and in 1996, Colegio Biblico operates on both sides of the border with Mexico. In this way Colegio can also provide education to students in Piedras Negras, Coahuila for those who could not obtain visas and now have the opportunity to receive training in Mexico.
