Kenrick–Glennon Seminary (officially Saint Louis Roman Catholic Theological Seminary) is a private Roman Catholic Seminary in Shrewsbury, Missouri. The seminary is named after Archbishop Peter Richard Kenrick and Cardinal John J. Glennon, former Archbishops of Saint Louis. The seminary traces its origins to the early nineteenth century. Since that time the locally well-known institution has provided education and formation to seminarians for ordination to the sacred priesthood for many Catholic archdioceses and dioceses.

The seminary maintains a graduate and undergraduate division, namely, Kenrick School of Theology and Cardinal Glennon College, respectively. Kenrick School of Theology also operates a Pre-Theology program for men who already have an undergraduate degree but need the required thirty undergraduate hours of philosophy prior to entry into the graduate division of the seminary. Kenrick School of Theology grants the Master of Divinity Degree (M.Div.) and the Master of Arts Degree in Theology (M.A.), and Cardinal Glennon College grants the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Philosophy.
