Monticello College builds Americans by providing a Liber education based on the liberal arts and the manual arts. History, literature, science, foreign language, philosophy, leadership training, and a number of other subjects are taught while living on and operating the farm where we grow most of the food that our students and faculty consume during the school year.
An intense application of both the liberal and manual arts is required to fulfill our mission “to build men and women of virtue, wisdom, diplomacy, and courage who inspire greatness in others and move the cause of liberty.”
Our graduates enter the post-college world with a skill set that gives them the option of not seeking a job, but rather empowers them to create a self-supporting business and living situation that is completely independent. Financial and living independence always comes before political independence.
