Christian College Rankings 2016

In 2013, Faith on View rankings began by ranking 191 Christian Colleges and Universities that are profoundly and distinctly Christian. In an attempt to be more comprehensive, the study has been expanded out to 200 institutions (19 new institutions and the removal of 10 institutions that closed). The institutions are ranked using 18 measures to attempt to quantify the ineffible concept of educational quality.
