The mission of Starr King School for the Ministry is to educate people for Unitarian Universalist ministry and for progressive religious leadership in society.


The school’s approach is rooted in the Unitarian Universalist values. Those are countering oppressions, cultivating multi-religious life and learning, and creating sustainable communities. Starr King School opened its doors in 1904 as the Pacific Unitarian School for the Ministry and was incorporated in 1906 as “an institution for educating students for the Christian ministry, and especially for that of the Unitarian churches.”
