The fundamental purpose of St. John Vianney College Seminary is to provide undergraduate education and formation for those students whose stated objective is to discern a call to serve the Catholic Church as priests. The institution assumes, as its specific responsibility, the academic, spiritual, pastoral, and human formation of college seminarians within a bilingual (English-Spanish) and multicultural setting. The college seminary is also committed to provide academic opportunities for laity and others who may be enriched by its services.
