If you’re struggling to choose a college, remember you’re not alone. Every year over 10 million people going through the admissions process ask themselves the same question: “Which college is right for me?” During these uncertain times, answering that question can be even harder!

Contrary to popular culture, higher education is more than a stop on your road to a successful career. It’s also a stop on the narrow road to heaven. As Pope Benedict XVI said,

“A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints.”

A majority of college graduates are Christian, but only 5% of students in the U.S. attend a Catholic college. So perhaps the question you should be asking is this:  “Which college is right for me and will help me become a saint?” 

At the Abbey, we believe in developing the whole person, guided by our 1,500-year-old Benedictine spirit of prayer and learning.

We believe an education rooted in the Faith will foster your love for Christ and help you develop the principles and values of authentic Catholic life. We accomplish this in many ways.

Daily Mass. Eucharistic adoration. Participation in monastic prayer. Enriching conversations with campus monks. Talks from the nation’s top Catholic speakers. In-depth studies of Church teachings and theology. Through it all, we follow the Catholic intellectual tradition of striving for excellence and virtue.

Answering that question, “Which college is right for me and will help me become a saint?” is made easy at the Abbey, where you will learn, seek and thrive on the road to personal and spiritual success.
