Our Mission

Banner

Claremont School of Theology is a transdenominational theological school and a founding member of a new multireligious consortium that's embarking on a bold 21st century experiment. Located in Southern California -- the most diverse region in the United States -- Claremont School of Theology is looking forward to the needs of the future church, one that's ready to preach and practice the Gospel message of love and compassion in a radically diverse world.

To do that, we're building on a relatively simple educational philosophy: we are desegregating religious education so our students can better learn about others as they learn about themselves. Research is showing that students gain a deeper understanding of their own faith when educated in the presence of religious diversity. It's a ground-breaking -- and controversial -- approach to ministerial education and Christian formation.
