Seminary

Seminary: Elective religious classes offered at LDS buildings, often located near public high schools or in members’ homes. In Utah, high school students are given the chance to leave the campus so a paid Mormon teacher can instruct them about the Standard Works and church history. In other states, students typically gather in the morning before school begins and may be taught by a volunteer. Topics include the standard works and church history. Evangelical Christians normally use this term to describe a school or college offering training for those entering the ministry.
