Franciscan University of Steubenville has emerged as a leader in academically excellent and passionately Catholic education. By integrating faith and reason in the pursuit of truth and right living, the University has grown from a small facility serving local veterans of World War II to a beautiful hillside campus and an educational institution recognized nationally and internationally for its programs, faculty, and graduates. Academically Excellent For nine years in a row, U.S. News & World Report’s guidebook on “America’s Best Colleges” has ranked Franciscan University of Steubenville in the elite “top tier” of Midwestern universities, and the academic excellence of our incoming students continues to rise. In 2009, the average ACT score of new freshman students was 26, which is 5 points higher than the national average.

For our excellent academics and conservative environment, Young America’s Foundation rates Franciscan one of the top 10 conservative colleges in the nation.
