GROVE CITY —
Grove City College is a Christian College of Distinction.
The college is one of only four Pennsylvania schools identified as such in Christian Colleges of Distinction’s 2013-14 rankings.
The designation means Grove City is a school that excels at the “Four Distinctions,” according to the organization that highlights standout colleges and universities. The Four Distinctions are: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes.
“Our longstanding approach of offering rigorous academics in a Christian environment at an affordable price is the right approach, and it is affirming when outside entities recognize this. This recognition also reflects our national reputation as a great Christian college,” Grove City College Provost Robert Graham said.
A College of Distinction is nationally recognized by education professionals as an excellent school, strongly focused on teaching undergraduates, home to a wide variety of innovative learning experiences, an active campus with many opportunities for personal development, and highly valued by graduate schools and employers for its outstanding preparation.
The goal of Colleges of Distinction is to provide students, counselors and parents with information about schools that excel in key areas. Colleges of Distinction describe schools that take a holistic approach to admissions decisions, that consistently excel in providing undergraduate education and that have a national reputation.
