At the St. Athanasius and St. Cyril Theological School we seek to provide all of our students with a sound Orthodox Education. Our mission is to mold students into Christian leaders who are spiritually mature, biblically and theologically responsible, professionally competent, intellectually astute, deeply committed to sharing the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our classes are designed to increase religious and theological knowledge of our student to prepare them for the various ministries of His Church.
Orthodox Students at the St. Athanasius and St. Cyril Theological School take classes as a part of our Certificate of Orthodox Theological Studies program or our Masters of Divinity degree. We believe in teaching the critical appropriation of the Orthodox tradition. We do this through a holistic approach that integrates study, work, worship, and personal discipline, in pursuit of the highest standard of academic excellence, professional ethics, and personal integrity.
And through the Grace of God, we seek to be the premier center of Orthodox Christian scholarship, pastoral education, Orthodox ministry and mission; and to set an example to Coptic institutions around the world.
The Certificate of Orthodox Theological Studies is the first theological degree in which a student can advance to a Masters of Divinity. Our M.Div. program is designed, chiefly but not exclusively, to prepare qualified students for ordination into the priestly ministry of the Church.
