Visit Our Campus

Discern Graduate School

Often a campus visit is one of the clearest factors in a prospective student’s discernment of graduate studies.



Whether you are a prospective on-campus or distance education student, we invite you to visit our academic community, located on 284 acres overlooking the Missouri River just north of St. Louis.



Learn more about our common life of study and prayer by visiting our On Campus page.
