Kiplinger’s Places Holy Cross Among Top 25 “Best Value” Liberal Arts Colleges

Ranking based on academic quality and affordability

October 24th, 2012 by 


Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine has ranked the College of the Holy Cross No. 25 among all liberal arts colleges in the country in its annual list of “best value” schools. The full list, which appears in Kiplinger’s December 2012 issue—on newsstands Nov. 6—features institutions that provide high-quality academics at a reasonable cost, particularly during these tough economic times.

According to Kiplinger’s, Holy Cross was ranked highly because “it exemplifies the attributes parents and students look for in higher education, including small class sizes, a good freshman retention rate and a high four-year graduation rate.”

To come up with their best values for 2012-13, Kiplinger’s took into account cost and financial aid, which were weighted most heavily; student indebtedness; competitiveness; graduation rates; and academic support. Holy Cross was viewed particularly favorably because of its commitment to meeting the full demonstrated financial need of accepted students.
