A nationally-recognized university

“Saint Katherine thus joins historic universities such as John Erskine’s Columbia and Robert Hutchins’s University of Chicago that embraced a structured, coherent, transformative curriculum in which what comes before serves as ground for what comes after with the aim of graduating students who have absorbed a truly liberal education.”  The John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy

“The American Council of Trustees and Alumni announced that San Diego-based Saint Katherine has earned an “A” rating in the nationwide What Will They Learn?™ survey. It is clear that the faculty and leadership of Saint Katherine came together and determined the skills and knowledge that all its graduates must have in common, whatever their majors might be. This is a sign of true academic excellence and commitment to student success.”  American Council of Trustees and Alumni
