Forbes.com

July 30th, 2014 by 


The College of the Holy Cross ranked no. 53 overall and no. 44 among private colleges on Forbes’ list of America’s Top Colleges.

Forbes partnered with the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP) to compile the list. According to the website: “The Forbes list of 650 schools distinguishes itself from competitors by our belief in ‘output’ over ‘input.’ Our sights are set directly on ROI: What are students getting out of college?”

The rankings are based on student satisfaction, post-graduate success, graduation rate and academic success.
