Catholic Profile


Your lifelong success is our daily mission.


One of the most common regrets college graduates have is that they wish they took advantage of more opportunities during their time in school. We refuse to let that happen to you. From the moment you arrive at Chestnut Hill College, we will help you build strong connections with people who want you to succeed and explore opportunities you would never have thought you’d find. We will make sure you take advantage of every possible resource and experience so that when you look back at your time in college, you won’t have a single regret. 

Chestnut Hill College, founded by the Sisters of Saint Joseph in 1924, is a private Catholic institution in Philadelphia, dedicated to providing students with academic and personal growth through a holistic education, cross-cultural understanding, professional experience, and a strong tradition of faith. We form students who enter the world with more intuitive reasoning, broader global perspectives, greater commitment to the service of others, and a stronger spiritual dimension wherever they lead.

Built on faith and a hill—but mostly on each other
On our magnificent campus you’ll find historic architecture met by modern buildings and beautiful additions, evidence of our progress. But—as you walk through our majestic rolling grounds, you’ll realize that it’s the warm, familial culture of our community that makes our campus so great. 

Small classes, big campus
Our quaint campus extends far beyond our peak on Chestnut Hill; Philadelphia is a one of the largest cities in the United States, providing CHC students with extensive internship, graduate school, and employment opportunities.
