Welcome

As a school which is United Methodist in origin and affiliation and ecumenical and interreligious in spirit, Claremont School of Theology strives to be a truly diverse and multicultural community. The residents in our housing come from many different countries and diverse ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds.

Living together in such a community, our students and their families learn what it means to be good neighbors to one another.
