Hildegard College

Hildegard College is an ecumenical Christian, classical liberal arts college opening in Costa Mesa, CA in Fall 2023. Hildegard is intentionally small, mentorship-driven, and independent of federal funding and constraints. We exist to form students for lives of faith, virtue, and extraordinary work.

Hildegard College offers an academically rigorous yet affordable one-degree model that puts students in conversation with the Great Texts, Quadrivial Arts, formation, and work experience with our Civic Partners. Students earn a B.A. in Arts and Humanities with a Concentration in Entrepreneurship, preparing them to be polymaths and world changers.


VIRTUE is the flagship publication of the Great Hearts Institute. It shares outstanding scholarship and first-hand stories from leaders, teachers, and students of classical education—all to inspire the continued pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.
