The Saint Charles Borromeo Major Seminary of Nyakibanda is a Roman Catholic seminary near to Butare, Rwanda.

The Nyakibanda Major Seminary was created in 1936. The seminary is under the jurisdiction of the Conference of Bishops of Rwanda, who in turn are under the Holy See in Rome, which is represented by the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.[1] It is in the Gishamvu sector of the Huye District in Southern Province, Rwanda, below the mountain chain called "Ibisi bya Nyakibanda". It is about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) from Butare.[2]

As of 2007 there were 186 seminarians taking the four-year course.[1] As of 2011 the rector was father Antoine Kambanda.[2] Kambanda was appointed in February 2006. He replaced Monseigneur Smaragde Mbonyintege, who had been named a bishop.[1]
