Benedictine College

School Description

Provided by Benedictine College

Heir to the 1500 years of Benedictine dedication to learning, the Benedictine College mission as a Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts, residential college is the education of men and women within a community of faith and scholarship.

Benedictine College is located in Atchison, Kansas on a beautiful 110 acre campus on the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River. The college's commitment to the development of the individual within community provides our students with the principles, knowledge and skills for a life of learning, leadership and service, "that in all things God may be glorified."

The two sponsoring institutions of Mount St. Scholastica Monastery and St. Benedict's Abbey are both Benedictine communities and the presence of the sisters and monks on the faculty, in administration, and just on campus brings the Rule of St. Benedict to the forefront on a daily basis. There are 10 core values from the Rule on which Benedictine College builds its foundation. In addition, the entire institution is guided by the vision of building one of the great Catholic colleges in America.

Benedictine College has a rich tradition in residential life; residentiality is the fourth pillar in the college's mission. This tradition stems from St. Benedict, who founded the first universities in Europe and established the first residence halls or dormitories near these monastic centers of education as early as the fifth century. Benedictine priests, brothers, and sisters co-sponsor Benedictine College. Living in residence halls, men and women prepare themselves to become responsible community members through intellectual, spiritual, physical, sensual, and emotional maturation. The cardinal virtues of fortitude, justice, prudence, and temperance, and the theological virtues of faith, hope, and love are taught with the aim of forming a graduate who does the good quickly, easily, and joyfully.
