  • Title: Young America's Foundation - Top Conservative College List
    Descriptive info: TOP CONSERVATIVE COLLEGES.. Young America’s Foundation is pleased to release the “Top Conservative College” list in response to the frequently asked question by parents and students of which schools we recommend to those seeking conservative colleges.. The Top Conservative College list includes.. Christendom College.. ,.. College of the Ozarks.. Colorado Christian University,.. Franciscan University.. Grove City College.. Harding University.. Hillsdale College.. The King's College.. Liberty University.. Patrick Henry College.. Regent University.. Saint Vincent College.. Thomas Aquinas College.. Thomas More College.. , and.. Wisconsin Lutheran College.. Introduction.. A wide variety of rankings exist for the market of American colleges and universities.. Each year,.. U.. News World Report.. releases its.. “America’s Best Colleges”.. edition.. The magazine grades each institution based on factors including peer assessment, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, and student selectivity.. Yet,.. News.. does not rank the overall experience that colleges offer.. That is why Young America’s Foundation presents the following list of institutions that offer a conservative experience for students.. Young America’s Foundation deemed these institutions the best, and they are listed in alphabetical order.. Many conservative students seek alternatives in higher education, but they may not be fully aware of institutions that fit these criteria.. The “Top Conservative College” list features institutions that proclaim, through their mission and programs, a dedication to discovering, maintaining, and strengthening the conservative values of their students.. These colleges offer an alternative to the liberal status quo, because they allow and encourage conservative students to explore conservative ideas and authors.. They offer coursework and scholarship in conservative thought and emphasize principles including smaller government, strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values.. Furthermore, they avoid trends in academe by continuing to study Western Civilization instead of straying toward the study of Marxism, feminism, sexuality, postmodernism, and other distractions that do not give students a complete understanding of our country, our culture, and its founding principles.. Young America’s Foundation highly recommends service academies such as.. West Point.. and.. Annapolis.. for people interested in serving their country and receiving a top-notch education.. However, these schools do not appear on our list.. They are not liberal arts colleges but rather military colleges that follow a training model for future officers.. There is nothing more honorable than serving our country, and we strongly encourage qualified students to consider this option.. This is not an exhaustive list of conservative institutions and should not be taken as such.. Nor should it be the only source consulted in a college search.. Young America’s Foundation recommends that this list serve as a starting point.. Parents and students should seek several information sources, read admissions materials thoroughly, consult with friends and counselors, and make visits.. Additionally, Young America’s Foundation is not a college rating organization; we decided to publish this list to help address a frequently asked question.. These colleges offer ROTC programs on campus or at neighboring schools: College of the Ozarks, Franciscan University, Grove City College, Liberty University, Patrick Henry College, Regent University, Saint Vincent College, and Wisconsin Lutheran College.. Please contact those schools directly for details.. If you would like to recommend other colleges for this list, please.. contact us..

Led by Dr.. Warren H.. Carroll, the visionaries also envisioned how, “the only rightful purpose of education is to know the truth and to live by it.. The purpose of Catholic education is therefore to learn and to live by the truth revealed by Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…”.. The original vision of Christendom lives today through the institution’s devotion to Catholic theology and way of life.. The core curriculum reinforces a Catholic worldview and teaches students to “distinguish truth from error or distortion, and then to communicate truth accurately, effectively, and convincingly to others.. ” Required courses include “Literature of Western Civilization,” “Introduction to Philosophy,” and “Fundamentals of Catholic Doctrine.. ”..

Works on many subjects are included in the program, including music, mathematics, and science as well as philosophy, language, and theology.. Faculty members serve less as lecturers and more as facilitators using the Socratic method.. Catholic faculty members publicly take the Oath of Fidelity and make a Profession of Faith at the beginning of their terms in office.. Campus life at Thomas Aquinas follows with traditional Catholic morality and teaching, and there are many groups in which students participate.. For example, the St..

In addition to mastering a wide array of readings, our students come to understand why they should learn what they learn; why certain authors are giants; why greatness in literary capability must not be equated with greatness in moral capability; and how the humanistic tradition of the West is their inheritance and will shape their lives.. One of the hallmarks of the educational experience students receive at Thomas More College is a full semester spent in Rome, Italy, during their sophomore year.. Living and studying in Rome need little justification: the experience of the city gives immediacy and substance to the broad range of studies at the College, awakening the student to the significance of Rome on the formation of Western civilization and the Catholic Church..

By studying and experiencing first hand Roman institutions, students come to understand the significance of and develop a greater appreciation for the American experiment..

  • Title: Young America's Foundation - Ronald Reagan & Young America’s Foundation
    Descriptive info: Ronald Reagan had a deep concern for young people in America, and a special bond with Young America’s Foundation students.. By his own account, Reagan’s career in public service was based on the conviction that America’s founding principles needed to be preserved and passed on to future generations.. “I hope you’ll believe me when I say that my decision to enter the political race was because I wanted so much to help preserve this wonderful country for you and the Skipper [Reagan’s son Ron] and all young Americans,” Reagan wrote in a letter to Sandy, the young daughter of longtime friend Lorraine Wagner.. “There are so many things to be thankful for in America, so many things that must not be lost,” continued Reagan, “if some of us help keep this for you , I know you’ll keep it for other young people when you grow up.. The relationship between Reagan and Young America’s Foundation—based on the shared goal of reaching young people with fundamental American ideas—began in the mid-1970s.. Starting in 1974, Young America’s Foundation sponsored a nationally syndicated weekly radio commentary program featuring then-California Governor Ronald Reagan.. The program allowed Governor Reagan to promote his ideas to the American people prior to his 1976 presidential bid.. It served as a conduit for spreading Governor Reagan’s message on taxes, crime, and foreign policy, subsequently cementing his national following.. During each of his eight years in office, President Reagan  ...   the Reagan administration.. Frank Donatelli, secretary and treasurer on the Board of Directors and chairman of the Reagan Ranch Board of Governors, served as the assistant to the president for political affairs.. Other Board of Directors members who served in the Reagan administration include:.. T.. Kenneth Cribb, assistant to the president for domestic affairs.. Edwin Meese, U.. Attorney General,.. Judge William Clark, Secretary of the Interior and National Security Advisor.. Caspar Weinberger, Secretary of Defense.. Becky Norton Dunlop, Deputy Assistant to the President..
