A pretty common assumption is that when it comes to Christian schools, you have to sacrifice some academic rigor.
According to the 2016 Forbes list of top 25 colleges, that doesn’t hold up. For the most part, schools that started faith-based, like Harvard and Yale—departed from their roots about a century ago. But what about the schools that didn’t?
“Hundreds of other colleges and universities have not left the Bible behind, often to great success,” reports Forbes. They specifically named Notre Dame, Georgetown University, Boston College and Davidson College, all of which appear in Forbes’ top 25.
Actually, of the best-ranked 130 schools in the U.S., 25 are Christian. That’s almost 20 percent.
