Learn the Truth. Live the Faith. Thrive.

An authentically Catholic college that prepares you for the future

Authentically Catholic

The cultural revolution of the twentieth century continues to take its toll on the world and on Catholic higher education. Today a new wave of aggressive secularism is attempting to sweep away the roots and reasons for your faith. How can a young person be prepared to succeed and keep the Faith in such a world? Christendom College was founded in response to this cultural revolution, providing a fully integrated liberal arts education in fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church. Here, you will learn from a committed and truly outstanding faculty, be immersed in a vibrant Christ-centered campus life, and be prepared to excel in your vocational calling as a confident, articulate, believing Roman Catholic.

While many Catholics are abandoning the Faith during their college years, our graduates are given the tools to learn the truth, live the Faith, and thrive.

Learn the Truth

Our time-tested integrated liberal arts education is the ideal education for the future. Through it, you will gain the communication and critical thinking skills necessary to refine and elevate your intellect and enable you to pursue your profession and personal vocation.

As you embark upon our challenging curriculum, the truths of the Catholic faith will illuminate your study of the great works of Western Civilization—the same field of study that has inspired and produced the greatest scientists, scholars, heroes, and saints of the past 2000 years. 

Through this education, you will be empowered to think for yourself, speak and defend the Truth, engage in the lifelong pursuit of wisdom, and enter your career or vocation as a committed and articulate Roman Catholic—standing as a beacon of Truth and hope for the future.

Live the Faith

Intrinsic to our liberal arts education is the formation of moral character and the fostering of the spiritual life.

On campus—whether in Virginia, Italy, or Ireland—you will experience a lived Catholic culture and learn the leadership skills you need to help renew the temporal order and “restore all things in Christ.”  To stand as a beacon of hope in today’s culture, you need a firm understanding of the True, the Good, and the Beautiful and the chance to live the Faith fully.

Whether in the classroom, on stage, on the athletic field, or in nearby Washington, D.C., you will receive an immersive Catholic education that will enable you to live a more Christ-centered, integrated life.

Thrive as a Catholic

Many students your age are content with just getting a job and living an ordinary life. 

But, if you are interested in learning the Truth, living the Faith, and thriving as a Catholic leader in the restoration of the culture, then we invite you to visit our beautiful campus—whether for a day or overnight visit, in-person or virtual Open House, or for The Best Week Ever during the summer—to experience a truly extraordinary life.

It is a noble mission to accept God’s challenging call to help Him renew the culture—one that countless alumni have undertaken before you. By studying at Christendom, you can become a herald of Truth and hope in a devastated culture.

“Christendom College is doing a great work for the Church.” 

-Pope St. John Paul the Great

“It would be difficult for Christendom to have a fuller Catholic identity. It does truly permeate the campus. You can see it, you can feel it on the campus…While some colleges in this Guide may match its Catholic commitment, it is unlikely that any exceeds it.”
The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College

What Christendom Parents Are Saying

Christendom College isn’t just a college, it is a family and we are so thankful to be a part of it.”

“Christendom College is very unique in the sphere of higher education. Where most institutions are focused on selling how their colleges and universities can benefit and give their students the tools to succeed in THIS life, Christendom College equips its students toward our ultimate goal – eternal life. And that’s not to say it is not also simultaneously preparing them for this life, as well – Christendom does a phenomenal job in both areas!  We have witnessed our children blossom in their faith before our eyes – not just in their knowledge of the faith, but actually putting their faith into action. There is nothing more joyful than to see this beautiful growth in our children as they begin to live their adult lives.

Mr. & Mrs. Cook

Parents of Maria ’22, Theresa ’20, Anna ’19, John Paul ’18, and Tim ’17, Manassas, VA

“Our family has been greatly blessed to have all our children receive their undergraduate education at Christendom College. Their Liberal Arts curriculum with its Catholic foundation has prepared them to succeed wherever God leads them. While the youngest continues his undergraduate studies, the oldest two are pursuing graduate degrees at Clemson University and one son is attending Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary. With our current culture, I am thankful that the values we instilled in our children were fostered at Christendom and have been carried into their adult lives. Christendom College isn’t just a college, it is a family and we are so thankful to be a part of it.”

Mr. & Mrs. LaRochelle

Parents of Mark '22. Michael '19, 'Nicole 17, and Sean '14, American Canyon, CA

“Christendom has meant everything to our family! …All 7 of our children have left our home state of Florida and enrolled in Christendom…  We have been pleased with their successes in life and in business. Two have become attorneys, one works in the technology field, one son is a music director and our oldest daughter taught for two years before becoming a mother to two beautiful girls. Our youngest son is in graduate school in Rome, and our youngest daughter will graduate from Christendom next May. The formation and education at Christendom more than prepared them for all their successes in life…  All I can say is “thank you” to all the wonderful professors and staff that helped us all become better Catholics!”
