About Seminaries and Institutes of Religion

The seminary program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a four-year religious education program for youth. In seminary, hundreds of thousands of students and their teachers meet to study the scriptures, including the Bible (the Old Testament and the New Testament), the Book of Mormon, the Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price.

There are currently over 400,000 seminary students in over 170 countries. Seminary classes begin a new year of study almost every month of the year in countries all over the world. All youth ages 14 to 18, whether members of the LDS faith or not, are invited to participate in this wonderful program.
