What Students Are Saying

4.09 Average Rating
A really great school that will prepare students choose the right path. A Liberal Arts school that will open the mind of students in becoming a better person . Having the love of wisdom and making not just the brain stronger but the soul.

Belmont Abbey is a very welcoming school. One of the Benedictine hallmarks that the school has adopted is that everyone is welcomed en persona Christi, or in the person of Christ. Everyone, including the faculty, staff, and students embody this hallmark.
