Christendom College has been named a top college by the Cardinal Newman Society for the ninth year in a row, as seen in the new 2016-17 edition of The Newman Guide for Choosing a Catholic College, released today. The Guide, which recommends only 29 Catholic colleges each year, praises Christendom for its Catholic identity and robust liberal arts education, saying “few American colleges can compare” to it.
“For close to 40 years, Christendom College has made a vital contribution to American Catholic life through its solid spiritual formation and its liberal arts curriculum. What was once a tiny holdout against the decline of higher education is today a model for Catholic liberal arts colleges, with a well-deserved reputation even in Rome,” says the Newman Guide.
“As more and more colleges abandon the rich, Catholic intellectual tradition and offer an increasingly secularized and watered down education, Christendom has stood firm against the tide of modern culture and remained committed to teaching the full truths of the Faith, in accordance with the Magisterium. It is an honor to be recognized by the Newman Guide once again for our exceptional academics and unmatched Catholic identity, as we continue to help students dare to be great in the pursuit of their God-given vocations,” says director of admissions Sam Phillips.
First published in 2007, The Newman Guide recommends 20 U.S. Catholic colleges and universities and nine international and online programs for their faithful Catholic identity.
The 2016-2017 book version of the Guide features a completely new layout with in-depth narratives exploring the uniqueness of each institution, popular sports, majors, and activities, sample questions to help Catholic families evaluate Catholic colleges, and much more.
The free online version at TheNewmanGuide.com includes all the content from the book plus the equivalent of more than 400 pages of additional information, videos, social media links, photographs, and the ability to sort colleges by major and athletic offerings.
