The uniqueness of the St. Louis Cluster lies in its very diverse clinical settings for learning and its ongoing relationship with major St. Louis seminaries: Eden Theological Seminary (United Church of Christ), Aquinas Institute of Theology (Roman Catholic), Concordia Seminary (Missouri Synod Lutheran) and Urshan Graduate School of Theology (United Pentecostal Church). The St. Louis Cluster centers are accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc.
