On Campus

Our on-campus students come to Denver to participate in a thriving Catholic community in the heart of a modern American city. And yet, the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains is the perfect backdrop for theological study, reflection, and spiritual growth. Our facility includes a beautiful new chapel, state-of-the art "smart" classrooms and a coffeehouse providing a welcoming space where friendships are forged among students and faculty. We have pastries!

Distance Education

We employ the latest technology to bring our mission to you. From video-based professor contact hours, to live video classrooms, to a dynamic community of learners, your distance education experience will be personal, rigorous and meaningful.
