An Abbey education builds an excellent academic foundation, provides the expertise that each student gains in his or her major discipline, grounds that learning with internship opportunities, integrates the whole student through a variety of rewarding and fun co-curricular opportunities, and equips each Abbey graduate to be a good person, a successful professional, and a responsible citizen.
The Catholic Benedictine traditions and values upon which the College was founded over 130 years ago inform all aspects of campus life, including academics. Benedictine monks take three vows: stabilitas, conversatio morum, and obedientia which when translated simply mean stability, being amenable to change and improvement, and listening. Belmont Abbey College provides a stable environment in which to listen, discuss and learn, to grow, and become open to change.

“After arriving and becoming a part of the community, I fell in love and couldn’t imagine leaving. The spirit of the community, the classes, the people, and campus itself became my home away from home. My college experience continues to encourage me and push to grow and flourish academically and spiritually in ways that cannot be found anywhere else.”
