A student is not a customer. A student is a soul, and a soul is a precious thing.
At Gutenberg College, we believe that faith and wisdom benefit from asking hard questions, not avoiding them.
We also believe this focus on wisdom does not neglect the practical realities of pursuing a career. As students engage deeply with the Great Books, not only do they gain the practical skills of reading, writing, and thinking but they also build character and humility—all of which are in high demand in the workplace.
• Liberal Arts or a Career: A False Dichotomy
One of the most common college beliefs of our time is that students should not pursue liberal arts degrees because these degrees offer a poor return on investment. This is a myth. A liberal arts degree is an outstanding choice for both life and career. See Career Development—Liberal Arts: Education for All Walks of Life on our website.

Some of the biggest changes in a person’s life happen after high school. But will that change be for the better? At Gutenberg, students learn how to make sense of their faith so that they can live a life that is pleasing to God amidst clamoring voices in a complex culture.
