Watch: A Day in the Life of a Seminarian


Christ at the Center of Our Life

At the heart of seminary formation is not an idea, an ideal, purpose, aspiration or plan, no matter how lofty or noble.

At the heart of formation is a person, and His name is Jesus.

He is at the center of everything a seminarian does, everything a seminarian is, everything a seminarian aspires to become.

At the heart of formation at St. John Vianney is something very simple: putting Jesus at the center of everything we do, everything that we are, everything we would like to be; all else is secondary.

Seminary Formation
Collegiate and Pre-Theology level seminary formation is all about laying strong and lasting foundations.
At Saint John Vianney College Seminary, that is what we do.


St. John Vianney offers a four-year Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Philosophy for students who arrive with little or no college background.


St. John Vianney offers a special 2-year Pre-Theology program (Bachelor of Philosophy (B.Phil) or Master of Arts (M.A.) in Philosophy) for students who begin priestly studies having already earned a bachelor's degree.
