Centre named ‘best value’ in Kentucky by Stacker

Centre College recently added another distinction among its list of “best value” rankings, as the College was recently named the best value in Kentucky, by Stacker, on their list of “Best Value Colleges in Every State.”

Stacker referenced a 2019 Niche list of Best Value Colleges in America to report the best value college in every state. The methodology for the list accounted for student surveys, cost and post-graduate financial earnings, among other factors that capture a school’s well-rounded value.

This ranking joins a host of “best value” accolades Centre has recently received, including being named a “best buy” in the annual Fiske Guide to Colleges and a 2019 “best college value” in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

Centre continues to earn its place on “best value” lists due to its emphasis on value and affordability, which is demonstrated through the College’s need-based aid and merit scholarship programs.

Centre’s focus on affordable education is among the most generous of any top national college, with 90 percent of incoming first-year students receiving financial aid.

Merit-based awards, such as the Grissom Scholars, Lincoln Scholars and Brown Fellows programs, which offer full-tuition plus and full-ride plus scholarships, allow talented students to receive an extraordinary education without the fear of crippling debt.
