As people learn about St. Lawrence Seminary, one of the most striking things many comment on is the ethnic diversity of the student body.

When teachers prepare for the school year, their focuses can vary significantly, though, likely all of them are interested in making the upcoming year one of the most successful they can for their students. The students of St. Lawrence Seminary returned to the Hill much earlier than many students in other schools; however, they were met with enthusiastic teachers who all had a vision for the year ahead.
“Whadja do over break?” (translation: “What did you do over summer break?”) is a frequently asked question when school starts in August at St. Lawrence Seminary.
Faith is a key part of our curriculum here at St. Lawrence Seminary. We strongly believe that boys need a strong foundation of Catholic faith to help guide them in life and develop them into mature, well-rounded adults. We foster a relationship with Jesus that directs a lifetime, both inside and outside the classroom.
