Christendom College has been named a top college by the Cardinal Newman Society in the new 2018-19 edition of The Newman Guide for Choosing a Catholic College. The Guide, which recommends only 17 residential U.S. Catholic colleges, says Christendom “sets a standard for fidelity and traditional education against which other Catholic liberal arts colleges are measured.”
“The two words that best describe Christendom College are Catholic and traditional, in the very best sense of both words,” says the Guide. “On the key measures of Catholic identity and liberal arts education, few American colleges can compare.”
The latest Newman Guide, which was released alongside a newly redesigned website from the Cardinal Newman Society, also celebrates the tenth anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s extraordinary address to American educators at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C — an address that has emboldened Christendom’s own educational mission to “restore all things in Christ” ever since.
“The 28 colleges recommended in the Guide share the vision for Catholic education that Pope Benedict described in 2008,” said Newman Society President Patrick Reilly.
First published in 2007, The Newman Guide recommends 20 U.S. Catholic colleges and universities and eight international and online programs for their faithful Catholic identity.
“It’s an honor to be included in the Newman Guide for the eleventh year in a row,” says director of admissions Sam Phillips. “Students are eager for a timeless education that will prepare them for success in this life and the next, but such an education is becoming harder to find in today’s secularized educational landscape. Many Catholic colleges and universities that built their reputation on a strong commitment to the liberal arts and a rich Catholic identity have long since abandoned both. Christendom stands firmly against that trend, and to be recognized as such is a badge of honor.”
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.
