A Centre degree is worth more. Outstanding students, top teachers, superior facilities, and individualized attention result in a better education. In addition, Centre's national reputation provides real advantages in gaining entrance to graduate and professional schools and in the job market.

At Centre, you'll finish on time. Ninety-seven percent of Centre graduates complete their degree in four years.

Centre is both a great value and unusually affordable. Forbes' most recent report of "America's Top Colleges" once again lauds Centre among the nation's best with a top-100 designation. Citing value among the key criteria for its rankings, Forbes explains that—unlike its peers—its sights are set directly on outcomes, asking the question: "What are students getting out of college?"

According to the Forbes rankings, Centre students are receiving top value. Ranked number 80 overall out of the 650 public and private colleges and universities in the nation, Centre hits the mark when it comes to things that matter most to students: quality of teaching, great career prospects, high graduation rates, and low-levels of debt.

The 2014 edition of Princeton Review's "The Best 378 Colleges" serves as the flagship college guide, annually featuring a prestigious listing of the nation's most academically outstanding institutions. The information is primarily based on an annual survey of students who attend the schools listed in the guide, providing an intimate and candid review in a way other rankings and college guidebooks do not. Centre's profile reveals high marks in a number of categories, including an overall academic rating of 94 out of a possible 99. According to the students surveyed, Centre offers "a genuine, personal, practical education in all areas of life," pointing to small classes that offer an 11 to 1 ratio of students to faculty as "focused and challenging."
