Our Students

Our students have come to the Mountain from around the country and as far away as Asia and Africa.


Purpose Statement

The School of Theology is a leader in Episcopal education that prepares priests and lay leaders for ministry in witness and service to the Triune God rooted in scripture, theology, prayer, and reflective practice. Its academic, worship and community life is characterized by intentional commitment to the mission of the Church, especially through Christian education and formation and to the Church's call to social justice.

Sewanee and the Episcopal Church

Owned by 28 Dioceses of the Episcopal Church, the University of the South, along with The School of Theology, is a most unique community.



The University of the South began in the early nineteenth century with a great vision and dedication to theological education.

From the Dean

Sewanee is infused with a gentle spirit of Christian humanism grounded in the Anglican tradition.
