Founded in 1837, St. Charles College is the site of the first Jesuit college in the South. Today, it functions as a Jesuit seminary and spirituality center. The massive brick structure was built in 1909 to replace the original, which was destroyed by fire. The extensive grounds include the dairy barn, another Grand Coteau landmark. The Center just completed a $14million dollar renovation to include restorations and upgrades. Three, five, eight and 30 day retreats are offered through reservations. The Center is a private facility; please call for reservations.
