About Our College

Soon after the organization in 1798 of what is now called the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (in Philadelphia), steps were taken to establish a seminary for the education of its students of theology. Classes commenced in 1810, making RPTS the fifth oldest seminary in the United States. During its first 46 years, RPTS shifted to at least five different locations in several states; In 1856, the seminary relocated to the North Side of Pittsburgh and then settled in a brick mansion on Pittsburgh’s East End in 1923 where it has remained.
