Belmont Abbey College

Belmont Abbey College is a private liberal-arts Catholic college located in Belmont, North Carolina, USA, about 15 miles (24 km) west of Uptown Charlotte. It was founded in 1876 by the Benedictine monks of Belmont Abbey. The school is affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church and the Order of Saint Benedict. It is endorsed by The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.

Offering an undergraduate education, the college enrolls students from diverse ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds.

As a result of the closing of Sacred Heart College (see below), Belmont Abbey is the only college in North Carolina affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church.

Home to more than 1,700 students, Belmont Abbey College is a small, Catholic, Benedictine liberal arts institution. We find our center in Jesus Christ, and believe in the development of the whole person—in mind, body and spirit.

Our mission is to provide an eabbey-lane_fallducation that will enable our students to lead lives of integrity, succeed professionally, become responsible citizens and be a blessing to themselves and others.

Founded in 1876 by Benedictine monks we continue to celebrate the 1,500 year old Benedictine monastic tradition of prayer and learning. The Cardinal Newman Society calls Belmont Abbey College one of the top Catholic colleges in America for faithfulness and affordability, and First Things Magazine recently named the Abbey America’s #1 “School on the Rise, Filled with Excitement.” Though we are founded on our Catholic, Benedictine traditions we welcome a diverse body of students regardless of religious affiliation.
