“Christendom College is not just a superior academic institution. It forms young men and women into real Christian disciples, people of keen intellect, prudent judgment, deep Catholic culture and a zealous love of God and learning. So it was at the college’s founding in 1977. So it is today. No one can ask anything higher from higher education…The Church owes a hearty ‘thank you’ to everyone in the Christendom College community for their extraordinary witness of Christian humanism and unembarrassed, joyful dedication to living the Catholic faith.” – Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, Formerly of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, PA
