In 1977, when Dr. Warren Carroll and a few of his associates founded Christendom College, authentic Catholic higher education was under attack and seemed to be on the brink of extinction. With but five faculty, twenty-six students, borrowed facilities, and a mere $50,000 in the bank, Christendom College began its long and frequently difficult journey to restore Catholic higher education to its rightful place and become one of the top Catholic liberal arts colleges in the nation.
Today, Christendom is a solid college with undergraduate and graduate programs enrolling 500 students. It maintains two campuses, manages a modest endowment of nearly $5 million, and enjoys an excellent academic reputation, as well as an impeccable reputation for fidelity to the Holy Catholic Church.
