The Borromeo Seminary Institute, housed on the campus of the Center for Pastoral Leadership of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland, prepares college students seeking the ordained priesthood of the Catholic Church. Its program is designed according to the norms and recommendations of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and its Program of Priestly Formation. Students admitted by the Diocese of Cleveland or by their religious order to the program for collegiate seminarians matriculate at John Carroll University, where they are known as members of the Borromeo Seminary Institute (BSI).

BSI students complete all of the academic requirements of John Carroll University and are expected to fulfill additional course requirements specified by the collegiate seminary program. The formation program at the Seminary in Wickliffe is concentrated on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so that students may attend classes on the JCU main campus on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00–5:00.

All BSI students are required to complete the following courses in philosophy, as well as theology and religious studies. Latin and Greek language coursework also is encouraged. Descriptions of the courses can be found in the pertinent department sections in this Bulletin. The Philosophy course sequence is available online at http://www.borromeoseminary.org/academics/philosophy/course-sequence/, while the

Theology course sequence is available at http://www.borromeoseminary.org/academics/theology/curriculum/.
