Grove City College (GCC), named after its location about one hour north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is the #1 ranked Christian college in the nation and also one of the most affordable. The school has long been committed to Christian values and morality, and its faculty members work without tenure.
Grove City College has superb programs in business, political science, math, science, and engineering, and is one of the few major colleges that is unregulated by the federal government because it declines all federal aid. As a result, Grove City College determines what is best for its students without the burden of anti-Christian or liberal requirements, and can base its sports programs on interest levels rather than on Title IX's gender quotas.
Unlike other colleges, Grove City College maintains a 50%-50% balance between men and women in enrollment.
Grove City College is historically associated with the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA), but attracts students from all religious beliefs and is probably more conservative than that denomination today.
