School’s Comments:

Located in beautiful New England, Magdalen College of the Liberal Arts calls her students to a transformative education of the whole person. This education is ordered to human flourishing and communion, animated by the perennial questions, given shape by the Great Books, and nourished by a vibrant liturgical and sacramental culture. Joyfully Catholic in this ascent toward true freedom and a vision of the Good, Magdalen College calls all within her community to enter the great conversation of authors seeking wisdom that has unfolded across the ages and to cultivate a life of virtue, poetic imagination, service and life-giving fidelity.

Holy Spirit College

Holy Spirit seeks to educate and to form students who, as leaders in professional and civic life, will live by the highest intellectual and ethical standards. In service of this goal, Holy Spirit endeavors to create an environment in which integrated learning is a shared responsibility. Shared responsibility for the life and governance of the College should lead all its members to make the best of their own talents, to work together, to be sensitive to one another, to serve others, and to seek justice within and beyond the Holy Spirit community.
