Through our collaboration with partner seminaries, our students have the opportunity to learn about other world religions. Consortium partners include Claremont School of Theology (Christian), Bayan Claremont (Islamic), and the University of the West (Buddhist).
The Academy is also a member of Intersem, a collaboration of 6 seminaries – three Jewish, two Protestant, one Catholic — which supports a student-led overnight retreat every winter. With a faculty sponsor, a group of students plans a theme for the annual retreat, organizes prayer services representing the three different religions, and offers diverse workshops. Intersem is a project of the American Jewish Congress, one of the oldest interfaith organizations in the United States.
