While SSW houses a variety of degree programs, and shows its academic prowess through the highly educated staff and student body of the school, SSW does more than that. SSW creates a top of the line educational community, which is only enhanced through the compassionate focus the school has on spirituality and care for each person, whether they are faculty, student, or staff. SSW is an Episcopal school by name and origin, yet it is an ecumenical school in study body and courses available. Seminary of the Southwest considers all education – both on paper and through life experiences – to be important in the journey toward being formed as spiritual beings.
