Belmont Abbey College rankings and awards


We are a small, Catholic, Benedictine, Liberal Arts College which seeks to "enable students to lead lives of integrity, to succeed professionally, to become responsible citizens, and to be a blessing to themselves and to others" (mission statement). We share the home of the monks and benefit greatly from their prayers and work in our community and share in their work and prayer to the best of our abilities "that in all things God may be glorified." There are extensive opportunities for athletics (NCAA Division II and Intramural), Clubs, and Internships on and off campus. Students are developed in mind, body, and spirit -- no aspect of the whole person is left behind, so that lasting knowledge, friendships, partnerships, and happiness can be attained while on earth, but also looking forward to heaven. We offer merit-based scholarships as well as our premier scholarship programs which offer thousands in savings off our tuition. These premier scholarship programs are built around our Honors College, Catholic leadership, theatre, dance, and more. For more information visit our website at Check out our website to learn more:
