Catholic Profile


In the heart of New York City’s prestigious and peaceful Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, students at St. Francis College are encouraged to dream big.  

 

Travel + Leisure magazine cites Brooklyn Heights as one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in America.

Quality private education
Founded more than 150 years ago by the Franciscan Broth
ers, St. Francis College’s mission has always been to help students achieve their life dreams of personal and professional success. Offering one of the lowest private college tuition rates in the New York metro area and a generous financial aid program, the College’s value-added approach provides an outstanding education with all the benefits and opportunities associated with a small private college. U.S. News & World Report classifies St. Francis as one of the “Best Regional Colleges in the North,” as well as the fifth most diverse. Forbes.com placed St. Francis on its “America’s Top Colleges” list for the sixth year in a row, and most recently the College was recognized in Money magazine’s “Best Value for Your Money.”

 

Outstanding academics
The College offers more than 70
programs, majors, and minors, all within a small yet dynamic classroom setting. The student-faculty ratio of 17:1 means accessible professors within an engaged learning community. The General Education Program, the College’s academic cornerstone, helps promote student learning outcomes through various bodies of knowledge—this in turn allows students to fulfill their requirements while learning about a wide variety of subjects outside of their majors or minors. 

 

Rewarding hard work
More than 80% of our students qualify to receive institutional aid, which includes academic scholarships, grant aid, and athletic scholarships. This makes our already reasonable tuition even more affordable and delivers the best value for your college education.

 

NCAA Division I athletics
Students participate on 19 Division I athletic teams, including men’s and women’s basketball (Northeast Conference Champions), men’s soccer (Northeast Conference Champions), women’s volleyball and bowling, men’s and women’s water polo, cross-country, golf, swimming & diving, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track.

 

Living in a small community within a big city
Off-campus housing is located in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, just a few blocks away from the College. The residence hall provides a quality, safe, and affordable living environment
all within an exciting area that has been recently recognized as one of America’s most beautiful neighborhoods. St. Francis College offers a supportive educational environment that helps develop the whole person. All the wonder and opportunity of New York City is right at your doorstep, but you will always be able to step out of that fast-paced world and return home to a community that believes in social responsibility and mutual respect.
