A generation of young leaders for Christ, reclaiming a nation for liberty – that is the vision of Patrick Henry College
That fact is not only why Patrick Henry College exists, but it’s also what makes us so remarkable. We now have over 800 alumni working around the world and if there is a common refrain I hear, it’s that they excel wherever they choose to go. Whether it’s our Strategic Intelligence majors rising quickly through the ranks of the FBI and CIA, or our Government majors grabbing coveted White House and Capitol Hill internships, or our business majors making an early name for themselves at Fortune 500 companies, Patrick Henry College students understand how to think clearly, communicate convincingly, and do so with the character and conviction that only comes from a deep relationship with Jesus Christ.
In higher education today, students are often told they must either pursue an elite, exceptional education from the Ivy Leagues, or a Biblically rooted education from a Christian college. Patrick Henry College was founded to challenge that status quo and I believe we’ve done so convincingly. Patrick Henry College is a place for students with a deep desire for excellence, who want to reach higher and dig deeper.
Our students take their degrees in many different places, from the chambers of the Supreme Court to the whiteboard at the front of a classroom.
If there’s one thing I hear time and again, it’s that Patrick Henry College students stand out from the crowd.
So special. After all, for a college that began less than two decades ago, we’ve seen a remarkable amount of success – from national and international debate championships to regular White House and even Supreme Court placements. Over the years, I’ve learned much about what makes.
Before coming to Patrick Henry College, I spent over 30 years of my career in the fast-paced, high-pressure corporate banking world. And in my role as an executive, I often interacted with recent graduates and young talented professionals that our company brought onboard. Despite the fact that many came from top universities or had letters at the end of their names, I found a common and consistent weakness: too few knew how to think critically and communicate convincingly.
