I am wondering if the United States offers any type of program for juniors and/or seniors in high school to maybe leave their high school and go into a seminary boarding school to gain high school and seminary credit at the same time(Including Spirituality, Human and Pastoral formation). And this would all be funded through the diocese.
I live in Georgia and we have an Accel program that allows juniors and seniors in high school to join enroll part time or full time at a university near their school for both college and high school credit. So by the time you graduate from high school, your a junior in college.
Now Georgia doesn't have a seminary in state, our closest one is probably either in Alabama or Florida.
Even if it isn't going to a seminary, but eh... Retreats are always an option, but not a 'jump start' in seminary.
