Christendom applications on the rise

Christendom College in Front Royal reported a 21 percent increase in the number of early action applications received compared to this time last year. In addition, the number of men in the applicant pool increased, with 49 percent more male applicants than last year.

"The current generation of students … want(s) an education that is authentic and that challenges them to be the great people that God calls them to be," said Director of Admissions Sam Phillips. "This desire led to our record enrollment this fall, and that desire has only increased in the months since. These record application numbers prove that."

While Christendom's early action deadline has passed, interested students may apply for the regular admission deadline of March 1.
