Holy Apostles College and Seminary was founded in 1956 on a 40-acre (160,000 m2) property in Cromwell, Connecticut, 13 miles (21 km) south of Hartford, by the Very Reverend Eusebe M. Menard, O.F.M., to provide a program of education and formation for men intending to enter the priesthood of the Roman Catholic Church.


Holy Apostles was then a college level, preparatory seminary, which Father Menard entrusted to the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles. After 16 years of operation, Holy Apostles, in accordance with the directives of Vatican Council II as well as, according to the college's website, its responsibilities to the larger Christian community, began admitting non-seminarians, women included.

All degrees (whether traditional on-campus, or distance) are recognized by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the State of Connecticut;. Members of its Board of Directors include the bishops of Connecticut with the Bishop of Norwich as Chancellor.

The institution places heavy emphasis on the academic disciplines of Philosophy and Theology in the context of the Catholic honors liberal arts curriculum. There are required core courses for undergraduates.[2] They include a distribution of courses in theology, philosophy, English in the Humanities and History in the Social Sciences.
