School’s Comments:

Everyone who works for The Collegium must be a practicing Catholic and must sign the “Oath Against Modernism,” which is a form of the “Oath of Fidelity.” Even though we are committed to the unchanging truths of the Catholic Church, we are not legally affiliated with the Catholic Church. Thus our professors do not have a mandatum. We are the only four-year college specifically dedicated to serving traditional Catholics.

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.
