CALL Online Courses

The Center for Anglican Learning and Leadership’s (CALL) online courses are offered throughout the year and are designed so that you can participate at your own pace and at your own time.

Each course is 7 weeks, each week a separate lesson. Continuing Education Units are offered at the rate of 2 CEUs per course. Students from across The Episcopal Church and beyond join experienced online instructors in creating a classroom environment of respect and mutual learning.

To help continuing education and local formation students structure their programs, we offer a Continuing Education Certificate in Anglican Foundations.  These courses are offered regularly to enable the student to complete the program in a timely fashion.

  • Courses are open to anyone, lay or ordained, of any denomination or none.
  • Review our FAQ’s for more information about how online classes work.
  • All courses are subject to cancellation should the minimum registration limit not be met.
  • Contact the CALL office via email with any questions.
