Cresson, Pa. – For the 16th consecutive year, Mount Aloysius College has been recognized as a “College of Distinction.” In addition to being recognized as a general College of Distinction, PA College of Distinction, and a Catholic College of Distinction, the Mount was also recognized for its business, education, and nursing programs, as well as the career development and military support offices, for the 2023-2024 academic year.

“We are proud to once again be named a College of Distinction, and we will continue to dedicate ourselves to the success of our students,” said Mount Aloysius College President John McKeegan. “Our mission is ‘to respond to individual and community needs with quality programs of education.’ That mission is as strong today as ever.”

A “College of Distinction” is a college or university that excels in student-focused education. Nominations for College of Distinction recognition are based on recommendations from high school counselors and quantitative research.

Created in 2000, Colleges of Distinction helps students and parents navigate the often overwhelming process of finding the optimal college or university. The list of 2022-2023 Colleges of Distinction vary in institution size, cost, location, academic offerings, and much more, but they all meet or exceed standards in each of College of Distinction’s four overarching distinctions: student engagement, teaching, community, and outcomes.
