The article calls it a seminary, but it's more like a prep school for boys planning to be priests.
There are college seminaries and theological seminaries in the Catholic Church. Those entering studies for the priesthood, that already have a Bachelors degree from an accredited college, enter the theological (or advanced) seminary... they graduate with a Masters of Divinity before becoming ordained priests.
Because Tom didn't have a college degree, he attended a college seminary. The priest that remember him is a Franciscan, now posted in Indiana.
