Princeton Review says Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, Calif. among best in U.S.

Thomas Aquinas College is one of the country's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review, and it ranks #1 in the country for “most religious students.” The education services company features the 4-year, Catholic school in the new 2010 edition of its popular guidebook, The Best 371 Colleges (Random House / Princeton Review, July 28, 2009, $22.99).

Of special note in this year’s report on Thomas Aquinas College is that the school is one of only 13 in the country to be named to the first-ever “Financial Aid Honor Roll,” receiving a highest possible rating of 99. It also received a rating of 99 for its academics, and is one of the “Top 50” institutions in the country. Further, it is ranked in the Top 20 in 8 of 62 additional categories.

Noting that the report is based heavily on what students themselves say about the institutions that are profiled, Thomas Aquinas College President Peter L. DeLuca said, “It is gratifying indeed to see how pleased our students are with their educational experience on account of both our rigorous academic program and our generous financial aid policy. I am also delighted to see the spiritual fervor of these young people recognized by The Princeton Review.”

This flagship annual college guide by The Princeton Review profiles only the best of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges –
about 15% of them. It includes detailed profiles of the colleges with school rating scores in eight categories, plus ranking lists of top 20 schools in 62 categories based on The Princeton Review's surveys of students attending the colleges.
