Christendom receives high ranking

Christendom College in Front Royal recently was ranked by news media organization NewsMax No. 2 out of 40 "Best Colleges for Conservative Values" in America. Hillsdale College in Michigan took top honors, and Franciscan University of Steubenville was ranked No. 8.

"We've been standing for traditional, conservative values since our founding - it's part of the reason why we refuse to accept any federal funding," said Tom McFadden, Christendom vice president for enrollment. "We want to be able to educate our students with the full truth, rather than offer a watered-down, more liberal education. We're honored to be recognized for our stance by NewsMax."
