"As you prayerfully consider where you might be studying, I am delighted that you are considering Virginia Theological Seminary.  While the website will give you a sense of the Seminary, this is no substitute for a visit. Our eighty acre campus, nestled in the historic town of Alexandria, provides an environment for growth, learning, and community."
The Very Rev. Ian Markham
Dean and President
Information for Prospective Students:
Although the Admissions Office usually looks forward to hosting Master's level applicants for a visit to the VTS campus, the current situation with COVID-19 has necessitated that we discontinue campus visits for the foreseeable future. VTS offices are closed with staff working remotely from home. We plan to have a virtual tour available soon so that you can experience a bit of the campus feel from the safety and comfort of home.

In the meantime, please feel free to email us at admissions@vts.edu to ask questions or to schedule a time to meet remotely with our Director of Admissions, Derek Greten-Harrison. We look forward to talking with you, and to eventually being able to resume our campus visit program.

Scheduling Admissions Interviews:
A faculty Interview is a required part of the application process. Due to the campus visit haitus, we are currently scheduling remote interview appointments once an applicant's file is complete.

Old Town Alexandria is the historic district of the City of Alexandria. Alexandria was a colonial seaport established in 1724 and Old Town is now a lovely restored area with interesting sights, shops and restaurants. You can get there by catching the DASH bus right outside the Seminary Road gate (across the street). At the southern tip of Alexandria is Mount Vernon, the home of our most famous citizen, George Washington. (About a 15-minute car ride from the Seminary)
