You will be making a very important decision in your life by becoming a student at SMBS. Our goal is to help you to grow spiritually, obtain a firm foundation, and develop a strong love for God and people. While going through this growing process, it is our sincere desire that you would feel supported and encouraged.
Throughout the learning process, there might come a time when you will be in need of advice, encouragement, or counseling of a spiritual leader. We would like you to know that there are people ready to listen, offer support, and pray for you.
We would also like for you to feel welcome and comfortable in a new city, state, church and living arrangement. Below you will find some important information about your stay in Jacksonville.
Housing: SMBS rents houses that we use as dorms and there will be groups of students who will live there, or you will be placed in a Host family (Christian family from the local church). Those living with a host family will be rooming with another student.
Meals: Included in the tuition cost are two full meals, breakfast and lunch, which will be provided in school. All other meals are the student's own responsibility.
Transportation: If you do not bring your own car, we will work to place you with a student who has transportation. If you do own a car, we strongly ask you to bring it with you.Those who bring their own car will receive a discount of $200 off on their tuition.
