Academic Quality and Affordability.

“For prospective parents worried about the market utility of Liberal Arts degrees, please know that our 9 Christendom grads (4 added by marriage) are successfully raising our 31 grandchildren with rewarding employment and nary a meal being missed. Christendom College will greatly reward you and your children who enroll. Our Lord and His Mother will approve.” – Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Murphy who sent all 5 of their children to Christendom.


We deliver a high-quality education at an affordable price. That’s why Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine ranks us as one of the Top 100 liberal arts in the nation (2018 rankings) that provides both academic quality and affordability.

You’re not going to find our caliber of education and personal formation anywhere in the country—especially at our price with our Price Match Program.
