Brunnerdale Minor Seminary served as the Roman Catholic minor seminary of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood from 1931-1981. The school was devoted to preparing young men for the priesthood. In later years, Brunnerdale added a Brother Candidate Program for those interested in becoming a brother in the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. Located in Canton, Ohio, the building and grounds were sold in 1989 and is now Glenmoor Country Club.

Between 1931-1948, students attended Brunnerdale for as many as three years and then completed high school at Saint Joseph's College, Collegeville, Indiana. Brunnerdale became a four year high school seminary in 1949, graduating its first class that same year. Later referred to as Brunnerdale High School Seminary, the final class to graduate was in 1981.
