We are actively seeking new ways for the Christian church to play a vital role in the fabric of society—a role in which the love of God, our neighbors and ourselves is central to the practice of active compassion in the community. This revitalization requires innovative programs, and a renewed commitment to spirituality and social justice.
As an ecumenical Christian graduate school, we offer a rigorous education, focused on critical theological reflection that equips graduates from all walks of life to meet the urgent needs of our times through both time-honored and innovative ministries. Our distinguished faculty guide students through the resources of our Christian faith and focus the educational experience on the challenge of deepening the world’s capacity for compassion.
Founded in 1871 and rooted in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), SFTS values dialogue and engagement with other religions and faith traditions. Our grounding in the Reformed tradition fosters faith-filled engagement in public life and service to others.
