America’s Best Christian Colleges: Northwest Christian University


Northwest Christian University is ranked among the America’s Best Christian Colleges as determined by the 26th Annual National College Survey administered by Institutional Research and Evaluation, Inc.

“We are pleased to be included in this prestigious list of Christian institutions of higher education,” said Joseph D. Womack, Ed.D., President of Northwest Christian University. “Being ranked among America’s Best Christian Colleges is a testament to our faculty, staff, and friends commitment to provide NCU students with a Christ-focused education that integrates Wisdom, Faith, and Service into the learning and social experience at our institution.”

NCU is listed among some of the nation’s most outstanding Christian academic institutions, including: Pepperdine University, Hope College, Santa Clara University, University of Notre Dame, Gordon College, Wheaton College, Calvin College, Baylor University, Marquette University, Lipscomb University, and College of the Holy Cross.

More than 1,100 Christian universities and colleges were surveyed. Only 100 schools made the list based on the quality of facilities, having an entering freshman class in fall 2015 with a high school grade point average and SAT/ACT score equal to or above the national average for all freshmen, being closely affiliated with a Christian denomination, and integrating Christian principles and belief in the instructional curriculum and social environment. Institutions did not pay to participate in the survey or ranking.
