Mission statement/description

Northeast Catholic College is a four-year co-educational Roman Catholic college.  It offers a bachelor of arts and associate of arts degree in Liberal Arts.  The mission of the College is to give an integrated Catholic liberal arts education: to teach and form students intellectually, morally, socially, and spiritually.

The mission is accomplished through the rigorous study of works by great thinkers, close personal interaction between teachers and students, and a vibrant community life.  The Program of Studies thus prepares young people to live life well and assume an active and competent role in the modern world.
