About Us

 “This has been the most authentic journey of my life. The School brings an intense and joyful inquiry to my most fundamental questions:
Who am I? What is my purpose?”  P. Petty

about usThe School of Sacred Ministries, a service oriented, non-profit divinity school founded in 1997, is a leader in the field of interfaith education. Our mission is to help spread greater understanding by respecting those of all faiths, and recognizing and embracing commonalities.

The School’s curriculum features an experiential and academic approach set in a student centered, supportive environment. Through lecture, numerous retreats, reading, self-reflection and community service, our students are given an extraordinary opportunity to learn more about themselves as they learn about others.

Accessible from New York, Philadelphia and Princeton, our location enables us to attract outstanding instructors of all faiths and fields of study, while maintaining an affordable vehicle for study.

Our student body reflects a variety of spiritual beliefs, religions of origin, professional and volunteer interests, and socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. This rich diversity creates an exciting atmosphere for challenge, educational enrichment and growth. The deep, life-long bonds our students form with one another are for many the source of the greatest, and most unexpected, joys of the program.
