Top Christian Colleges 2018

Boston College

Faith on View began ranking top Christian colleges in 2013. In the five years since we began this project, other organizations have followed suit. These are, however, the original and by far the most comprehensive Christian College rankings available. We employ the most complete measures based methodology available for Christian College rankings anywhere. We calculate the rankings based on 18 measure to ensure the best possible rankings. (See our methodology) We also look at a broad cross-section of institutions from world-renowned Catholic institutions like Notre Dame and Boston College to premier evangelical institutions such as Wheaton College and Baylor University to very fine tiny colleges with only dozens of students such as Gutenberg College and New Saint Andrews College. No other ranking considers the landscape of Christian higher education so comprehensively.

The reception to the rankings has been excellent. They have been cited in the Atlantic and cited on the websites of several of the colleges in the study including Wheaton College, Dordt College, Northwestern College, Milligan College, and Shorter University. Additionally, many of the schools have shared the rankings on their social media communities.

And now, here are the 201 rankings…
