History of Seminary

Thomas Yates first LDS Seminary TeacherSeminary began in 1912 at a home near Granite High School in Salt Lake City, Utah. Thomas J. Yates was hired as the first teacher and taught afternoon classes to 70 students. President Eyring's mother was in that first Seminary class.

First LDS Seminary BuildingBy 1920, Seminary enrollment was 2,982.

Seminary was started as an alternative to replace church operated schools which were becoming too expensive to maintain.  This allowed students to attend public schools and still receive religious education each school day at a nearby Seminary building.

They looked for the very best, dynamic teachers for this program, to inspire and involve young people.

In 1950, the first early-morning Seminary program began in California.  Held in church buildings that were near high schools - and quickly spread throughout the United States wherever there was a concentration of church members.

In 1962 early morning seminary began to go international.

In 1967 home-study Seminary was developed to meet the needs of youth too far from the high school to attend each morning with a class.  Students studied lessons at home and met weekly with a teacher and other students.

In 1980 the curriculum became standardized covering the four books of scripture in four years, Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon and D&C Church History.

Today the seminary (for grades 9-12) and institute (for college age students) programs teach over 700,000 students in 143 different countries through the efforts of nearly 50,000 full-time, part-time, and volunteer teachers and administrators.
