The University of the South Child Care Center takes infants and children ages six weeks to five years old. Space is offered first to faculty, staff, and students.

Sewanee Children’s Center at Otey Memorial Parish Church welcomes children age two to five. There is also an after school program for children to age eight. There is a lottery in the spring for new placements but spaces sometimes come available during the year.

Companions in Ministry

The Companions in Ministry (CIM) is composed of all spouses and partners of seminarians, faculty, and staff from The School of Theology at the University of the South. The CIM meets the third Tuesday of each month during the academic year for programs, fun, fellowship, support, and spiritual development. The CIM also organizes several events during the year for the entire seminary community including summer community picnics, day hiking trips, a Christmas party, and panel discussions.

Health Insurance

A generous student medical and dental insurance plan, through The Episcopal Church Medical Trust, (CMT) is available to seminarians and their dependents. You can visit their website to view the plans that are available to you as a student. Just click on "Seminarian Insurance" and select the "Health" tab.

August is considered our open enrollment period and you may sign-up during your student orientation; the deadline for enrolling is usually by the end of August. You may be eligible to enroll in a Medical Trust health plan if you are a full-time student and you may remain enrolled year-round for as long as you are in seminary.

This and other pertinent information is available on the Church Medical Plan website.
