Christian Colleges and Universities

Students often discover that they can enhance their learning environment by attending a college or school that closely associates itself with that student's religious body or spiritual beliefs. A faith based school, or commonly called a parochial school - is quite simply an institution that is supported by some religious body.

Many students find that they become more enthusiastic about their studies, find it easier to make friends, and stay more emotionally balanced when going to a college that aligns itself with their own religious and spiritual viewpoints.

Most faith-based and parochial schools in the US are private institutions and in most cases are a bit more expensive than state universities. However, many of them offer publically funded financial aid and grants to the students who attend them. We encourage you to check degree program and financial aid offerings if you find a school that interest you.

Below you will find a list of several different denominational groups and religious bodies. You can click on any one of them to see the supporting colleges and universities around America that openly support this religion.
