Annual tuition at SVS is $10,500 per year. For those students who qualify, the seminary will provide 50% of the total tuition costs in outright costs, and up to 25% in more dollar–for–dollar matching funds with the other 25% of tuition paid through matching funds donated by ecclesial sources. Costs of room and board vary for single students and married families.
What does it mean to work at St. Vladimir's Seminary? Imagine working in an environment where on a daily basis you use your education, training and professional experience to help an institution which trains priests, lay leaders to serve the Church in the United States and around the world! As we labor in our individual tasks we are constantly reminded by the ringing of the Chapel bells that as Orthodox Christians we are called first to worship in community.
After working almost thirty years in corporate America, continually explaining that I am an Orthodox Christian and asking for time off on the major feast days, it is a privilege and a joy to work with other Orthodox Christians who "know what day it is!" While we are a business with all the challenges that brings, we operate in an environment steeped in the rich history that is St. Vladimir's, and the commitment to our mission is evident in our surroundings and in our personnel, from the Board of Trustees on down to the part-time staffers. It is truly a blessing to call this my job.
