Since its founding in 2000, Patrick Henry College (PHC) has a record of accomplishments that few colleges—Christian or otherwise—can match.
LEGAL AND JUDICIAL IMPACT
Attorneys and jurists who are constitutional originalists with a biblical worldview are critical to our future. Lawyers and judges at the highest levels make decisions that affect our nation for generations—sometimes tragically, as in Roe v. Wade.
Patrick Henry College’s unmatched record of moot court dominance, LSAT scores, Tier-1 law school admission, and Supreme Court clerkships give our graduates the greatest chance for success at these influential positions.
Within a 4-year period, four Patrick Henry College alumni have clerked for the following U.S. Supreme Court Justices: Scalia, Roberts, Kennedy, Alito. A Supreme Court clerkship does not guarantee someone will become a Supreme Court justice; however, 5 of the 9 justices serving in 2019 were previously Supreme Court clerks.
In addition, Patrick Henry College alumna Lindsay See, Solicitor General of West Virginia only 10 years out of PHC, has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Patrick Henry College has created the finest pathway to legal excellence in America for Christians.
CONSERVATIVE POLITICAL LEADERSHIP
At the highest levels of government, it is critical that our leaders are highly educated, love our country, and believe in the truth of Scripture. Patrick Henry College graduates are on a pathway to political leadership, creating a formidable bench of conservative leaders for the future.
Leaders at the White House and Capitol Hill report that PHC interns and employees are among the best in the nation. A former PHC student, not yet 30 years old, was selected as press secretary for Vice President Pence.
Patrick Henry College is producing next-generation, conservative, political leaders for our nation.
TRUTH IN MEDIA
Freedom of the press is indispensable to liberty. America needs powerful communicators who see the world clearly and believe the Bible is the final source of truth.
Patrick Henry College graduates flourish in both Christian and secular organizations, earning positions in national outlets including FOX News, National Geographic, The American Conservative, Forbes, and WORLD Magazine, while their writing has appeared in The New York Times, and the Washington Post, among many others. The voice of truth is beginning to take root in our nation’s media, in part because of PHC.
AMERICAN NATIONAL SECURITY
National security is of paramount importance. The need for godly leaders with integrity in our security agencies is essential.
Patrick Henry College graduates serve in high-level positions throughout these agencies, bringing the light of Christ to the world of national security. For example, a 2010 PHC graduate became the youngest ever presidential briefer for the FBI. PHC is educating the next generation of ethical leaders for our national security agencies.
THE PROOF IS CLEAR. PHC IS BUILDING EFFECTIVE PATHWAYS TO THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF LEADERSHIP IN AMERICA.
