50 Best Christian Colleges & Universities of 2021

What is a Christian college?

Christian colleges are private, independent schools that receive their funding through a combination of endowment income and student tuition fees, as well as in some cases through denominational giving. The best Christian colleges in America will create learning opportunities that balance academic inquiry with Christian faith and tradition. For many students, Christian college also represents the chance to earn an undergraduate degree in a wholesome environment among classmates who share a common set of Christian values.

The following list of the best Christian schools consists entirely of colleges and universities that offer four-year undergraduate degrees. We’ve identified a total of 442 Christian colleges in the US. In order to be included in this ranking list of best Christian colleges and universities, a school needs to satisfy the following three conditions:

  1. It must be fully accredited.
  2. It must have a student body of at least 1,000 students.
  3. It must self-identify as Christian.

How do we determine the best Christian colleges and universities?

Methodology

The people affiliated with a school are ultimately what make it great. This is why, at the undergraduate level, we rank the best colleges and universities based on what we call “Concentrated Influence”. Concentrated Influence takes the combined influence score of a college or university’s top academic influencers (including faculty and alums) and divides it by the school’s total number of undergraduates.

Using concentrated influence gives small and mid-sized schools an opportunity to shine by taking away the size advantage of larger universities. A small school with proportionately more influential faculty than a large school, whose influence in absolute terms may be bigger, will nonetheless score higher in a concentrated influence ranking. Our approach highlights undergraduate schools that truly rank for excellence, regardless of size.

If you are serious about finding the best colleges and universities for a bachelor’s degree, you should be asking where the most influential professors are teaching and whether their graduates are themselves advancing the school’s reputation for academic excellence.

Most ranking sites rely on an opaque combination of reputation surveys and arbitrary performance metrics. Concentrated Influence provides a ranking that is free from bias, insulated from manipulation, and reflective of real-world educational outcomes.
