For the second straight year, Arizona Christian University has been ranked among the nation’s Best Colleges by U.S. News & World Report – the most respected and comprehensive college ranking system in the nation.

“We are thrilled to again be recognized as a ‘Best College’ by U.S. News & World Report,” said President Len Munsil. “Last year’s ranking was the first in our six-decade history, and a second straight year is a great indicator that we are building a national reputation for excellence.”

ACU is ranked among the Best Regional Colleges in the West, and is the only ranked Arizona school in this category. The category covers colleges and universities from 15 western states, including California, Texas, Oklahoma, Washington and Oregon. Schools were ranked according to their performance across a set of widely accepted indicators of excellence. Of Arizona’s 14 universities, for the second straight year ACU achieved the highest ranking in its category of any university in the Grand Canyon state.

ACU has received a number of rankings over the past few years. Most recently, Arizona Christian University was ranked the number one University in Arizona by College Consensus, finishing first ahead of 2) Arizona State University, 3) University of Arizona, 4) Northern Arizona University, and 5) Prescott College. No other Arizona university was ranked by College Consensus, which combines a review of all major national rankings with student experience surveys.

“Our students are getting one of the best educations in the country – one that combines academic excellence with a commitment to spiritual formation,” said President Munsil. “We are grateful that the world is noticing what God is doing at ACU.”

ACU is a private, non-profit, Christian university in Phoenix, Arizona with a wide variety of majors and areas of study preparing students for successful careers, but also remains committed to its vision of transforming culture with biblical truth. All students are taught through a biblically-integrated, general education curriculum called “The CORE”.
