The Center for Higher Studies of the Legion of Christ is where most of the members of the congregation study their philosophy and theology in preparation for priestly ordination. It is located on the west side of Rome near Via Aurelia, right behind the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum. Most of the religious brothers study at Regina Apostolorum while living at the center (all Legionaries live either at the center or the General house on Via Aurelia while studying philosophy and theology).


The courtyard of the Center for Higher Studies covered in snow.

In 1991, the Legion built a center capable of 300 on via Aurelia Antica. However in 1999 this was turned into a college for diocesan seminarians and the current campus was built.[1]


Often deaconate ordinations and at times priestly ordinations of members of the Legion have been done in the center's chapel.[2]
