No, that is probably not the case.
The ICRSS do not require one to go to college or university before entering the Seminary. They do this because they know what a bad environment these kinds of places are for those discerning a vocation to the Priesthood. Also, Seminary formation takes the place of college/university.
As I said, I am glad the Fraternity have come to their senses on this issue. This was one of the minor reasons I chose to pursue the Institute, in the beginning, over the Fraternity.
From my understandings, you don’t even need a high school diploma, but before you are send off to Italy, you do need to learn French (and possibly Latin), which is done (i think) near at their St. Louis locations.
One definately needs a High School diploma, or A-levels in the British equivalent. That is the minimum qualification needed to enter the Seminary.
The ICRSS also have a younger age limit than the Fraternity, 30 vs 40 respectively I believe. There can be exceptions case by case however.
French is the language of the Seminary, and the Institute as a whole. Every Priest/Seminarian speaks it, so it has been described to me by one of their priests, as the ‘Latin’ of the Institute. This will not change. It is generally American candidates who do the one year ‘pre-formation’ before entering the Seminary popper, due mainly to the large culture difference between the US and Europe, and language of course.
