Campus & Study facilities

The Grounds

BISA is a 2-hectare campus comprising one single storey and five double storey buildings for teaching, admin and residential use, a grassed recreation area and two entrances leading into two carparking sites. The campus is built in a Quad style and has sea front views as well as a mountain aspect.




The Lecture Rooms

Roxton, the college’s academic and administrative centre, has four classrooms seating between 15 and 92 students. These are fully equipped with whiteboards, television and VCR usage, as well as video and overhead projectors.

The largest lecture room is also used for the college’s bi-weekly chapel services and for seminars and conferences for students and the public.


 Online learning and Learning Management Systems


BISA subscribes to CANVAS, a LMS that allows for seamless tuition, on or off campus, enabling the student to receive and submit work, keep on top of of study schedules and interact with the lecturers. This has been fully utilised during the 2020 lockdown period in South Africa.

Kalk Bay Community Church

Formerly known as "BI Chapel",  the Kalk Bay Community Church is situated on the Main Road, adjacent to the campus entrance. This interdenominational church is pastored by the Dr Rev Daniel Simango, principal of the Bible Institute and is attended by residents in the area as well as several BISA staff. 

KBCC provides a spiritual home for students from outside of Cape town as well as providing opportunites to serve the Kalk Bay village community, especially in children's ministry.
