Welcome! Discover St. Vladimir's Seminary

As the Chancellor and Dean of St Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary we welcome all of you who are exploring our seminary.  

Here, both faculty and students – male and female, single and married – live on campus to worship and study together, providing the best environment for the study of theology and the formation of future priests, theologians and other co-workers of God.

St Vladimir’s embraces the challenge of serving the Church and the needs of Orthodox Christians in the 21st Century.  Time brings change but the Truth of the Gospel is eternally unchanging; adjustments must be made to engage a rapidly changing world, but without sacrificing that which is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
