Choosing a Catholic college
The Cardinal Newman Society recognizes colleges for their commitment to a faithful Catholic education. No secular education is a complete education, and today much of secular education is opposed to Catholic belief and morality. On the other hand, sadly much of Catholic higher education has been compromised by ideology, infidelity, and scandal, and so we cannot recommend any college that is not listed below.
Our reviews are based on extensive research and dialogue with Catholic educators and families and are based on what the Church expects of Catholic colleges. Ultimately, however, The Newman Guide represents The Cardinal Newman Society’s subjective analysis and suggestions for Catholic families.
The bottom line
No college is perfect and no college is right for every student, but at least one of the colleges listed below is likely a good fit for your needs.
Parents and students should look closely at each college and, most importantly, make a campus visit, overnight if possible. We pray that you successfully find the college that is the best fit for you!
