Piedmont an urban campus. A suburban feel.

Located just 3 blocks from the impressive BB&T stadium in lovely Winston - Salem, North Carolina. We are conveniently located just one hour from the mountains and only four hours from the beautiful NC and SC beaches. Piedmont sits on approximately 10 acres just 4 blocks south from the downtown area and just blocks from Old Salem, the oldest Morivan settlement in the US.

Piedmont is unique in that residential classes are only held four days a week, Tuesday - Friday, allowing an extra day every weekend for ministry, studies or family time. A student at Piedmont can easily and fluidly move from residential to online without the hassle of withdrawing, re applying and paying extra fees.

This is also very impressive because it allows residential students to log in on the internet for their class and be counted present. Imagine waking up and not feeling your best OR your family is going on a trip but because of school you could not go ... NO PROBLEM! Just log on with your computer, join in with the class AND never miss your studies.
