The LDS church has a high school seminary system where high school students intensively learn the teachings of the LDS church. This is a week-daily 1/2hr - 1 hour class taken before normal school hours and then the kids go to their highschool. Do such systems exist for those in other Christian denominations?

    Most students do attend before school in the mornings, but in highly-Mormon-populated areas (Utah, Arizona, etc), they have "release-time" seminary, where a seminary class during the day actually counts toward school credit. More official information about the LDS seminary program: seminary.lds.org

  • Many private Christian and Catholic schools offer the same sort of thing for enrolled students.

    Remember also that the LDS churches expects all males to preach and be priests. The Protestant notion of "the priesthood of all believers" is not that at all... Feb 6, 2012 at 18:46
  • Mormons would say that they are not a Christian "denomination," just FYI.
