The Seminary was formed in 1929, largely under the leadership and funding of J. Gresham Machen. Though independent, it has long had a close relationship with the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, which Machen helped found in 1936. The first president of the Seminary was Edmund Clowney, who served from 1966 until 1984. He was followed by George Fuller and Samuel T. Logan. In 1982, the California branch of Westminster became an independent institution, Westminster Seminary California, and in 2009 the Dallas, Texas branch was established as Redeemer Theological Seminary. The current president is Peter Lillback, who also serves as a professor of Historical Theology.
Westminster was accredited in 1986 by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada and received accreditation in 1954 by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
On June 23, 2011, Middle States Commission on Higher Education passed an action to "accept the monitoring report and note the visit by the Commission's representatives. To remove the warning and reaffirm accreditation. To request a progress report due October 1, 2011 documenting the continued development and implementation of a comprehensive institutional strategic plan that links long-range planning to decision-making and budgeting processes (Standard 2). The next evaluation visit is now scheduled for 2013-2014." 
All trustees and faculty members are required to affirm their agreement with the theological perspective presented in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms, the core doctrinal statements of many Presbyterian denominations.
