Saint John Vianney College Seminary is a Catholic institution, founded in 1959 by Archbishop Coleman Carroll, the first bishop of the Archdiocese of Miami. The goal of the institution is to form men for the diocesan priesthood by focusing on the pillars of formation: human, spiritual, pastoral, and academic. When the seminary first opened, the curriculum was for four years of high school and then two years of college. After graduation from St. John Vianney, the men were expected to enter a major seminary to continue their journey. In 1976, however, the school changed its format and it is now a four-year college program focusing on philosophy.

The Vincentian Fathers opened and ran the school, but in 1975 the Archdiocese of Miami assumed responsibility for the direction of the seminary. The seminary serves men of all the Catholic dioceses in the state of Florida, as well as other seminarians from various dioceses throughout the United States and the world. In accordance with the cultural makeup of Southern Florida, the seminary bills itself as bilingual, allowing seminarians the opportunity to interact, pray and socialize in both Spanish and English.

The present rector of the seminary is Very Rev. Roberto Garza, former Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Miami. Father Garza was appointed to the position in June 2010 by Archbishop Thomas Wenski.

In 2010, there were 63 students enrolled.
