Learn and Grow at Seminary

You are called by God, and we exist to equip you.

Calvin Theological Seminary is a Reformed seminary that is globally recognized for its theological richness. We embrace a holistic form of education that attends to the character, spiritual, and vocational formation of students.

An Affordable Reformed Seminary Experience

Through the generosity of donors, Calvin Theological Seminary (CTS) is able to award many merit and need-based scholarships, renewable each year. But that's only the beginning.

CTS provides free financial management and financial literacy resources to students throughout their time at seminary. We're grateful that these resources are working, as the majority of recent grads report taking on zero student loans while studying with CTS.
