This course entails a close examination of the Constitution, as well as of the great documents of the American Founding.

In keeping with the monks' age-old tradition of hospitality, the College community welcomes newcomers and works together for the benefit of our students--aiming to exemplify the aspiration that our College motto encapsulates: That in all things God may be glorified
