"I have been supported spiritually by AEHS through the continual opportunity for prayer in community. Through daily morning prayer, weekly Holy Eucharist, and monthly noonday prayer. This continual environment of prayer has allowed for a centrality of prayer in my life that has sustained me thus far in my time at Duke Divinity."

AEHS provides accredited training for Episcopal, ACNA, and international dioceses, and Anglican formation for masters and doctoral students with a wide range of vocational goals. Duke’s Anglican community is unique among American seminaries in that our students and faculty represent both the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church in North America, among other provinces.

We worship and pray, train and serve together, as a witness to God’s promise of reconciliation in Jesus Christ and to the vitality of Anglican mission in our time. We prepare the next generation of church leaders through a robust liturgical life, instruction in classical Anglican tradition, and practical training for innovative leadership. Anglican students at Duke are encouraged to grow in many dimensions—in intellectual insight, professional skill, radical service, and personal holiness—reflecting Christ’s commandment to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.  All AEHS students participate fully in the life of Duke Divinity School and enjoy access to the many resources of Duke University.  In short, AEHS provides an exceptional opportunity for Anglican theological education for service in tomorrow’s church and world.
