As President of this association, it has been a privilege and an honor to see the growth and the impact of the Psychology community at Criswell College. CAPA is a great representation of psychology and theology coming together, and a gracious reminder of our Lord’s heart for restoration and healing.

Criswell College admits students who are Christians of good character, without regard or reference to race, national or ethnic origin, color, age, disability, or sex (except where regard to sex is required by the College’s religious tenets regarding gender and sexuality) to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of these classifications in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other school-administered programs.
