Attending a Catholic University Pays Long-Term Dividends

On October 5, the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) released a report outlining the long-term return on investment graduates of Catholic colleges and universities experience versus nearly every other sector of higher education.

ACCU utilized data from a previous report that I shared with you from the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce to hone in on the specific performance of Catholic colleges and universities.

The most striking aspect was at the 40-year mark, where the median salary for Catholic graduates was 16% higher than other private, not –for –profit graduates and 27% more than public college graduates.

Catholic colleges and universities have long been known for their personal attention and development of the whole person. It is also important to note that investment in a Catholic college can pay other dividends as well.

P.S. Lewis was also recently ranked a Top Ten Catholic Hidden Gem.
