The School of Theology’s core curriculum is rooted in academic excellence—grounded in the Bible, Prayer Book focused, and designed to provide the foundation for a lifetime of learning and serving. We will have you for one, two, or three years but we will prepare you for a lifetime of service. Our highly credentialed faculty takes the academic formation of their students very seriously and yet are able to provide a community of learners that nurtures creativity.
