Washington Monthly Ranks Covenant College #13 In Nation Among Baccalaureate Colleges

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

In its 2014 college rankings, Washington Monthly ranked Covenant College #13 among baccalaureate colleges in the nation, up from #15 in last year’s rankings.

The ranking specifically notes the community service in which students participate and the support students receive from staff and financial aid.

Washington Monthly ranks schools based on their contribution to the public good, in three categories: social mobility, research, and service. Washington Monthly explains, “Our rankings have always rejected the idea that expense, luxury, and exclusivity should be held up as the highest values for colleges and students to aspire to.”

Covenant ranked eighth in the country for the number of bachelor’s recipients who go on to receive PhDs, relative to school size, and first in the country for the number of alumni who go on to serve in the Peace Corps, relative to school size.
