Current Students

At JST we engage the whole person, inviting students to individual growth through spiritual formation, liturgy, community suppers, lectures, and active service.

The Office of Student Life creates an inclusive space of co-curricular learning that is focused on supporting each individual's needs and providing opportunities for growth through engagement with liturgy, community programs, lectures, soup suppers, and other activities.

We serve as an advocate for students and provide opportunities for enriched learning experiences through cultivating an environment that promotes healthy growth, wellness, and safety for each student and the broader JST community.

As members of the Graduate Theological Union, we strive for ecumenical and interfaith understanding along with our fellow schools in the consortium.
