Benedictine College 

Where Greatness Begins 


Heir to the 1500 years of Benedictine dedication to learning, Benedictine College’s mission as a Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts, residential college is the education of men and women within a community of faith and scholarship.



We are a small College but a lively community with many campus events and student activities throughout the year. We believe in service to the common good, respect for the individual, virtuous friendship, and the beatitudes. To demonstrate good will, humility, trust, accountability, justice, faithfulness, obedience, peace, and discipleship.

We welcome all to Benedictine College regardless of religious beliefs, but we are at our core a proud Catholic College, and we encourage  our students in their faith. 

We believe rigorous scholarship in the liberal arts, rooted in the monastic tradition, leads to the discovery of truth. To strive for wisdom lived in responsible awareness of oneself, family, society, nature, and God.

Our beautiful campus is located in the un-assuming hills of Atchison, Kansas, on the Missouri River. 


The faculty and staff of Benedictine College play a key role in our mission. It is through their example and dedication to this mission that thousands of young people have been set on the path to greatness.

We are looking for dedicated professionals who believe in our mission, see our vision, and share values to join the Benedictine Family. So take a look at our open positions and let’s get in touch! 


Forward. Always Forward.
