Established in 1886, Conception Seminary College is one of the largest of the 40 Roman Catholic college seminaries in the nation and one of only 15 with a complete four-year academic curriculum. Conception strives today, as it did a century ago, to fulfill the needs of the Church through the formation of men answering the call to the ministerial priesthood.
In the best Benedictine tradition, Conception Seminary College promotes academic excellence, character formation and spiritual growth. The operation of Conception Seminary College is the primary apostolate of the Benedictine monks of Conception Abbey.
Conception Seminary College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
