STAC Ranks Among Best Colleges in U.S. News & World Report

St. Thomas Aquinas College is proud to be ranked among the Best Colleges by U.S. News & World Report for 2023. This year marks the tenth consecutive year that the College has been recognized.

St. Thomas Aquinas College was also recognized as a Top Performer in Social Mobility for the fourth year in a row. This important ranking measures how well institutions graduated students who received federal Pell Grants – typically from households earning less than $50,000 annually.

“Providing access to an affordable education for all students is our top priority. So, it is rewarding to once again be named a best regional college by U.S. News & World Report and to be recognized for the social mobility of our students,” said St. Thomas Aquinas College President Ken Daly. “This is a reflection of the leadership and care of our dedicated staff and faculty who strive to provide a transformational educational experience for these students.”

Now in its 38th year, U.S. News and World Report serves as a guide for prospective students and their families, ranking 1,500 colleges and universities on up to 17 measures of academic quality.
