We provide a valuable, accessible education for all. Embracing every faith and background, our students are Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, non-practicing and more.
A nurturing environment is essential to that mission. On a daily basis, we strive to create and maintain a welcoming, inclusive community.
At Elms, education is not an end in itself. To have true meaning, the skills we teach must be practiced, with awareness, in the world at large.

The Elms Experience
Personalized“The individualized attention I got at Elms really prepared me to work closely one-on-one with professors when I got to Yale. I was able to be competitive in these really challenging settings.”
AcademicsOur 13:1 student to faculty ratio ensures small classes, individualized advising, and that all students get the support they need to be successful.
Core ValuesThrough our Catholic identity and our relationship with the Sisters of St. Joseph, we aspire to live and work according to the core values of Faith, Community, Justice, and Excellence.
Life on CampusOur campus offers everything our students need: from dormitories to athletic facilities, parking, and a newly refurbished quad, perfect for pick-up sports or hangouts around the fire pit.

We Are All Individuals.
Together We Are Elms
Elms College is a dynamic, Catholic, coeducational liberal arts institution whose mission is to educate students of all backgrounds that have distinguished themselves inside and outside the classroom.
We are devoted to providing our students rigorous academic challenges based on developing a strong sense of what they can contribute to the world, to their neighborhood, and to one another. To embody these goals, we strive to create a supportive community that not only enables our students to thrive, but one that they’ll take with them after they graduate.
Prepared for careers, and life, our grads leave Elms College richer than they started — rooted in faith, educated in mind, compassionate in heart, responsive to civic and social obligations, and capable of adjusting to change without compromising principle.
