“The Holy Apostles campus community is like a family to me where both commuter lay students, like myself, and the religious are united in God sharing our ideas with one another and where the professors are engaging, orthodox, and truly devoted to their students! All that I have learned in the courses I have taken here at Holy Apostles have not only educated me as a student but have truly strengthened me as a person! There is perhaps no better place on Earth to study and receive a traditional catholic education that is both true, affordable, and enlightening than at Holy Apostles!”

Judah P.


“At Holy Apostles, I was greeted with friendliness and genuine caring.  I was offered flexibility in both tuition options and scheduling.  I opted to enter with online courses; but I never feel isolated.  I am always welcomed to the beautiful Holy Apostles campus, and always feel a part of its many activities and opportunities.  I joined the community of HACS as a freshman; and I can honestly say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  Upon your first contact with the Admissions Office at Holy Apostles College and Seminary, you’ll see why!”

Class of 2021

“Joining Holy Apostles has given me the freedom to study what I love, travel where I please, and study where I travel. The professors at Holy Apostles, in addition to providing rigorous, faithful, and fascinating classes, have graciously assisted me in planning my course schedule in conjunction with these travels. Thanks to them I have posted my weekly assignments from the steps of Saint Peter’s in Rome, read over my textbook on the train from Rome to Assisi, and replied to my classmates from the Toronto airport.”
