Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary offers a two-year Pre-Theology program for men who have earned a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. The program is designed to enable seminarians to meet formation requirements for admission to the Theologate as articulated in the Program of Priestly Formation – 5th edition.

The Pre-Theologian is to demonstrate a level of commitment that may have manifested itself in his own preparation for entering a formation program by selling property or ending a career. He is marked by a degree of maturity and depth of commitment that both enables and empowers him to engage a structured formation program.
