What People Are Saying About Christendom Graduates

“They are a ‘must interview.’ They have a great work ethic, which follows the ethics they learn at the school. They are bright, with a penchant for continuous learning. I found that they have all the traits you want your own child to have — truthful, courteous, good interpersonal skills, respectful, and grateful.”

— Cindy Carci, Director of Sales at immixGroup

“Finding people with the right values and a good work ethic was proving very difficult for our business until we met with Christendom graduates. Their graduates have great attention to detail and learn the skills required for any position very quickly. We currently have employees who are Christendom graduates doing sales, marketing, management, customer service, and scheduling. They all do a fantastic job!”

— Tommy Salmon, General Manager at Hambleton Handyman

“I have hired over 20 Christendom graduates over the past 11 years for full-time and for part-time employment. I have always been impressed by their ability to work, to learn new tasks, and to take on responsibility in and out of the workplace. My business is quite complicated, and their ability to adapt to the various situations is very important. The graduates of Christendom with whom I have had the pleasure of working possess a deep character of integrity and virtue.”

— Paul Uhlenkott, Owner at EcoNize Closets

“Character, work ethic, good manners, and class are all attributes most employers value. We have found these very qualities in Christendom students — that’s why out company has already hired six Christendom alumni.”
