The Society



St. Cyril Society was co-founded by Emmanuel Gergis and Rev. Fr. Michael Sorial as a venue for Orthodox Christian theological and spiritual fellowship in December of 2011. The Society was incorporated on March 5, 2012 . The Society filed for its 501(c)(3) tax-exemption status and was approved on September 28, 2012. The Society acts as a holding company for the Saint Cyril of Alexandria Orthodox Christian College and the Alexandria School Journal which is an independent subsidiary of the Society.


Our mission is to establish a community of Orthodox Christian Theological fellowship whereby prospective and current young servants, scholars and missionaries can utilize various resources for spiritual growth and leadership development in present or future Christian ministry through affordable and attainable education.

Saint Cyril College


Saint Cyril of Alexandria Orthodox College

Saint Cyril College is operated by the Saint Cyril of Alexandria Orthodox Christian Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization aimed at raising the awareness of Orthodox Christian teachings through Patristic living, research and education.


St. Cyril of Alexandria Orthodox Christian Society confers diploma and certificate degrees by exemption as a religious institution in the State of California, and operates under the Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009, California Education Code (CEC) Section 94874 (e) of the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE).


The accreditation status of an institution will affect how easily an individual’s courses will transfer to another institution and how a prospective employer values the degree from a particular institution. Accreditation is an indicator of the program and the institution’s general quality and reputation. Accreditation is a process of peer review that the educational community has adopted for its self-regulation. It is a voluntary process intended to strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of higher education. Institutions choose to apply for accredited status and once accredited, they agree to abide by the standards of their accrediting organization and to regulate themselves by taking responsibility for improvement. Saint Cyril of Alexandria Oriental Orthodox College is applying for accreditation by the accredited agencies designated by the U.S. Department of Education.
