Belmont Abbey College

Belmont, NC

Belmont Abbey says, "The focus of our core curriculum is the Platonic triad of the good, the true, and the beautiful....We believe that studying the liberal arts in the light of Judeo-Christian values, reflecting on them, and cultivating the habits of mind they encourage will help students to think critically, to write and speak well, to master quantitative skills, and to understand how different disciplines, periods, cultures, and peoples have dealt with the great questions of life. Contemplating these questions ideally leads to wisdom and prepares students to live lives of integrity, constantly striving to improve themselves and the world in which they live." [Source]
