Assumption College for Sisters

The Assumption College for Sisters is a two-year Roman Catholic women's college in Mendham, Morris County, New Jersey, 35 miles (56 km) from New York City.

Founded in 1953 through an affiliation with nearby Seton Hall University, Assumption is run by the Sisters of Christian Charity and is housed in their Mallinckrodt Convent on a 112-acre (0.45 km2) property. It is the last remaining sisters' college, or college primarily designed to educate nuns, located in the United States.

The college “exists primarily to educate women called to a life of consecration to God and of service in the Roman Catholic Church.” (Mission statement) Our mission is the very reason we exist. It is who we are. Assumption College for Sisters prides itself on remaining the embodiment of the heritage received from Blessed Pauline von Mallinckrodt, foundress of the Sisters of Christian Charity. It witnesses to her conviction that the Sisters should be well prepared, both spiritually and professionally to spread the Kingdom of God through sound education, from which, in her words, “flows the temporal and eternal welfare of the individual and of society.” Assumption College for Sisters, convinced of the need and relevance of its mission and relying on the providence of God for light and strength, is determined to respond thoughtfully and vigorously to the needs of the times by preparing women religious for a lifetime of consecrated service to God’s people, particularly through education and healthcare.
