Welcome to the College of the Transfiguration. Located in the historic city of Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, we are the only provincial residential college of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.
We are dedicated to the development of future Anglican clergy that can operate effectively in the context of Africa (and beyond) and offer educational and formational courses in a residential setting that focuses activity around the chapel, dining hall and classroom so as to develop ministerial, social and academic skills. The College offers a rich and nurturing environment that challenges students to deepen their faith, relate across diverse backgrounds and cultures, and develop a complex understanding of their vocation.
The multicultural nature of the college fosters values of faithfulness, justice and compassion which in turn enrich our students’ faith journeys.
Equality and mutual respect are affirmed and diversity and difference valued as shared principles of life and responsibility.
We accommodate about 50 students from cross-cultural backgrounds – either on campus or in student quarters located in the streets surrounding the College.
