Here at Viterbo, we believe learning is a life long process involving more than just academics. It’s also about experiencing life and growing intellectually, culturally, and spiritually. Students can expect to be excited and challenged. We have a 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio, state-of-the-art facilities, and a faculty that cares deeply about the success of each and every student. Founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in 1890, Viterbo remains committed to its Catholic Franciscan values and its mission to prepare students for faithful service and ethical leadership.
