Culver-Stockton ranks among top schools in the region
Tuesday, September 07, 2010
CANTON, Mo. – Culver-Stockton College has once again ranked among the top post-secondary schools in the Midwest. C-SC was rated 33rd on the list of Best Regional Colleges in the Midwest in the 2011 edition of “America’s Best Colleges” by “U.S. News & World Report.” This marks the fifth consecutive year that Culver-Stockton has been included among the top Midwest baccalaureate colleges.
“We are pleased that Culver-Stockton continues to be included among the top regional schools. Although the rankings are certainly not the only measurement of educational quality, they serve as a valuable resource for prospective students and their families during the college selection process; they also reaffirm Culver-Stockton’s commitment to providing students of promise with a superb educational experience,” said Richard Valentine, president of Culver-Stockton College.
Schools included in “America’s Best Colleges” are judged on a number of criteria including: student retention, graduation rates and strength of faculty. “The success of our students and strength of our faculty speak volumes about who we are as a college. Small class sizes and low student-to-faculty ratios allow for more in-depth learning opportunities and greater individualized attention for students, which are hallmarks of small, private colleges like C-SC,” added Valentine.
The rankings were published in the September 2010 issue of “U.S. News & World Report.” The annual lists, based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, provide a resource for parents and students in the college search. The online issue of the magazine and a detailed explanation of the ranking methodology are available at www.usnews.com/colleges.
Culver-Stockton College also ranked 22nd in the “Washington Monthly” baccalaureate college rankings. The publication judges schools based on several factors including: commitment to service, scholarship availability and student graduation rates, among other criteria.
