What Students Are Saying

3.82 Average Rating
A Fantastic blend of excellent scenery, community, faith, facilities, and discovery. This college holds exploration of the self, and studies very highly while mixing in a deep seated, faith guided studies with moral and thorough self examination. The Facilities are top notch, with much available, and most of it being new or updated, but it does have some issues such as the upkeep time.
Robert from Ijamsville, MD
this is a very good school with strong academics. however, if you want to be surrounded with things to do, then this school is not for you. there is a very tightly close-knit community.
