Virginia – Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, N.C., is recommended in the 2018-2019 edition of The Newman Guide, the flagship project of The Cardinal Newman Society that recommends 28 Catholic colleges, universities and higher education programs for excellence in faithful Catholic education.

Today, the Newman Society is proud to launch a completely redesigned website at www.TheNewmanGuide.com and updated profiles of all of the recommended colleges.

The expanded Newman Guide content online goes beyond highlighting important differences among faithful colleges. It also helps families understand the value of a faithful Catholic education, how to navigate the college search, and how to guide students in growing their faith on campus.

The latest Newman Guide also celebrates the tenth anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s extraordinary address to American educators at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

“The 28 colleges recommended in the Guide share the vision for Catholic education that Pope Benedict described in 2008,” said Newman Society President Patrick Reilly.

The Newman Guide colleges respect their important role as “integral to the mission of the Church to proclaim the Good News.” They strive to carry out Pope Benedict’s charge, that “each and every aspect of your learning communities reverberates within the ecclesial life of faith.”

A printed Newman Guide resource will be available in the fall.

As part of its Newman Guide program, The Cardinal Newman Society has expanded its innovative “Recruit Me” program, which invites The Newman Guide colleges to recruit interested high school students, shares college search tips, and allows seniors to participate in the Newman Society’s $5,000 Essay Scholarship Contest.

For graduates of Newman Guide colleges and others, the Newman Society’s new www.CatholicEdJobs.com website connects faithful Catholic schools and colleges with qualified job candidates who are dedicated to their Catholic faith and the mission of Catholic education.

Founded in 1993, the mission of The Cardinal Newman Society is to promote and defend faithful Catholic education at all levels, including elementary, secondary and higher education. The Society is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit organization supported by individuals, businesses, and foundations.
