    “These schools are truly almae matres, nourishing mothers,” says one student, “who care for their children’s physical, emotional, and spiritual welfare.”


    During uncertain and troubling times, what’s a Catholic high school senior to think about attending college?

    Christ promised, “I am with you always, until the end of the age.” For young people across America, the year 2020 was tumultuous and often difficult, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the election, racial tensions and violence. Did any of this affect students’ resolve to attend a faithful Catholic college?

    That was the question posed to high school seniors competing for scholarships in The Cardinal Newman Society’s annual essay contest, and the responses we received give me great hope for the future. Indeed, the events of the past year have made me even more certain of the need for wise and virtuous graduates of faithful Catholic schools and colleges. We rely on them to renew our culture.

    Trinity Chester, a homeschooled student in California, writes that the “challenges of the past year” left her with the conviction that she “could not possibly settle for anything less” than a faithful Catholic college.

    I think, from a secular point of view, that students get a good education at Catholic universities.

    I don't know about tuition and other costs, but I would hope that Catholic students would get a little break.

    The Concordia University System associated with my denomination is top notch, but prohibitively expensive for most students.

    I think a little "no nonsense" is needed in this countries education system...Pre-K through Doctorate... IMHO anyway.

    That's awesome, you love to see it! I wish I could convince my fiancée's kids to go to a proper Catholic college (if they decide to do college at all)...but their faith is so unimportant to them that it would be a tough sell. I guess I have time to make that influence though.

    I had her laughing the other day cause I was telling her I'm Thomas Aquinas College's biggest recruiter and I never went there. I've just been so thoroughly impressed with how well-rounded my friend's educations from there have been that I think it should be TAC (or Christendom College, or Wyoming Catholic College) or bust, so I'm always telling people about them.

    This part is something I've been saying for a while, I sincerely believe the sort of education that's coming from these small Catholic colleges is what's molding the true leaders of tomorrow.

    Indeed, the events of the past year have made me even more certain of the need for wise and virtuous graduates of faithful Catholic schools and colleges. We rely on them to renew our culture.​

    It's classical education without all the critical race theory nonsense and underwater basket weaving feminist theory crap that's polluted secular academia.

    About 10 percent of the College’s alumni have entered the priesthood or religious life, a third of the graduates have gone on to graduate studies or other advanced education, and others have pursued a wide variety of careers.​

    It's true. My friend/RCIA sponsor who went there has a career in business, his wife is a stay-at-home mother and has been a parish choir director in the past. My ex is also an alumna from there and she's a winemaker. Whodathought that reaching back to the classical education style (i.e. developing a curriculum based on the Trivium and Quadrivium) would lead to graduates who were intellectually and functionally wel-equipped enough that they could do anything.
