Christendom’s admissions office is experiencing record increases in applications across the board. From undergraduate applications to the Experience Christendom Summer Program, the college is seeing a level of unprecedented interest, as more and more students seek out its authentically Catholic liberal arts education.

Christendom is experiencing a record level of interest and applications across the board.

“We’re thrilled to see this level of interest in Christendom’s education,” says director of admissions Sam Phillips. “For the past few years, we’ve seen our numbers grow, but this year is a new high. Students are clearly hungry for a timeless education that will challenge them and help them to grow academically, personally, and spiritually, and we’re happy to see that they believe Christendom is the place where that can happen.”

Looking ahead to the fall of 2018, the admissions office has already seen a 17% increase in the number of applications received. The March 15 deposit deadline for many of the applicants just passed, and the admissions office is happy to report an almost 15% increase in deposits over this time last year. The office is expecting to admit a record number of freshmen this fall, and is well on its way to achieving its goals.

The most-popular, well-attended, and highly-ranked pre-college summer program of its kind, the Experience Christendom Summer Program, is seeing record numbers of applications as well, with an expectation that a waiting list will have to be implemented, as it has for the past number of years. The one-week program, which admitted a record number of rising high school seniors last year, is getting full for its six one-week sessions this coming summer.

This coming weekend, the college will also welcome a record number of applicants for its Padre Pio Full-Tuition Scholarship Competition. Sixty high school seniors will be on campus with their families — a huge increase over previous years — in order to compete for the opportunity to win a full-tuition scholarship. Due to the high level of interest in the scholarship, the college expanded the number of scholarships handed out from two to three, while also offering five $5000 runners-up scholarships.

Students want the best college education possible, one that will set them up for success for this life and the next. Now, more than ever, they are choosing Christendom as their college of choice for achieving these goals.
