HTS started in 2001 as an unaccredited Reformed seminary in a part of the country that already has an accredited seminary (Sioux Falls Seminary-a North American Baptist Seminary). The seminary settled in Vermillion, SD and owned a building in the city until 2010 when it moved to Sioux Falls, SD. It now inhabits part of the RCUS church building in Sioux Falls. The first graduating class was in 2006, and consisted of two men. One went in the Reformed Church in the United States and the other joined the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
