VTS At A Glance

Virginia Theological Seminary strives to form women and men for leadership in the Church. Founded in 1823, we are an accredited Seminary of the Episcopal Church -- one of only ten in the United States. Students from every Episcopal province in the US and from many other countries find their way to VTS to be shaped by the discipline of worship in an environment committed to learning so that they can serve Christ effectively.

VTS celebrates the richness of the Orthodox Christian tradition. We affirm the centrality of the Scriptures, the historic creeds, and our Prayer Book in our learning and living together. We recognize that Christians disagree about much and encourage the conversation as we seek to discern God's will for our age. Christians across the spectrum are welcome at VTS.

Our eighty-acre campus, nestled in historic Alexandria, provides an environment for growth, learning, and community. Contact our Admissions Office for a tour and come see the delights of our campus, including our library, chapel, refectory, dormitories and classrooms!
