Admission and Fees




The caliber of both supervisors and peers creates a uniquely challenging and focused experience that positively impacts my ministry daily.

[GACS] broadened my understanding and appreciation of how Pastoral Counseling, Chaplaincy and Psychotherapy work across different specializations (hospice, addiction, hospital, etc) through the actual experiences of my colleagues. 


I have found the Graduate Academy of CPE Supervision (GACS) to be top notch. Being in the program has given me a greater understanding of myself and taught me how to develop a stronger ministry of presence with those I serve.
