In 1958, the Washington Bible School started a three year graduate school known as the Capital Bible Seminary (CBS), a core component of the institute. Both campuses are located in Lanham, Maryland near Washington D.C.

The Washington Bible Seminary offers undergraduate degrees in Biblical studies and general studies.
