The Young America’s Foundation identified those institutions of higher education who are unafraid to introduce their students to conservative scholarship, and who engage in dialogue regarding key topics of interest to conservatives, including smaller government, free enterprise, and traditional values. Most of all, they looked for those institutions that offer a core curriculum based on the time tested ideas of the West.
“Thomas More College is widely recognized for its Liberal Arts curriculum, which introduces students to the greatest books of Western civilization,” said Mark Schwerdt, Director of Admissions at Thomas More College. “Students are guided through these works by accomplished faculty who are committed to the Catholic Faith and the search for truth.”
Dr. William Fahey, President of Thomas More College and personal assistant to one of the 20th century’s leading conservative thinkers, Russell Kirk, was pleased to receive this award.
“Thomas More College is honored to be chosen by the Young America’s Foundation as one of the top conservative colleges in America,” said Dr. William Fahey. “It is heartening to know that we are recognized and valued as one of the few colleges that continue to educate students in the best of the Western intellectual tradition.”
