Saint Joseph's Seminary was an American Roman Catholic educational institution located in Plainsboro, New Jersey,[1] though with an address in Princeton, New Jersey. It was founded in 1914 and was operated by the Congregation of the Mission, better known as the Vincentian Fathers, for the formation of their members and other candidates to the Catholic priesthood. The school closed in 1992 and a retreat center occupied the site until 2009.[2]

Marillac Campus

The former seminary is now home to a number of private schools

The complex is currently referred to as the Marillac Campus, after Saint Louise de Marillac, and the Vincentians rent space to a number of private schools, including the French American School of Princeton,[3] the American Boychoir School,[4] and the Laurel School.[5] The campus was previously home to the Wilberforce School, a Classical Christian school,[6] though it moved to larger accommodations in 2014.[7]
