American Council of Trustees and Alumni Grants Regent University A-Rating for Classical Scholarship

REGENT UNIVERSITY   |  January 24, 2018 by Brett Wilson Tubbs

Regent University has received an “A” rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) according to the research provided by the organization’s college guide, What Will They Learn? ™

The guide studies every major four-year college and university in the United States and assesses each school’s “commitment to teaching essential knowledge and skills,” including areas such as expository writing, U.S. history, natural science and mathematics.

Through the study, schools are given a grade of “A” through “F” based on whether they offer courses in seven core subjects.

Only 24 of the 1,1160 institutions surveyed nationwide received an “A” rating according to the What Will They Learn? ™ official website. Regent’s rating came out ahead of other universities such as the University of Virginia, College of William & Mary, University of Richmond and Liberty University.

ACTA is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring “academic freedom, excellence, and accountability” for American colleges and universities.


Launched in 1995, we are the only organization that works with alumni, donors, trustees, and education leaders across the United States to support liberal arts education, uphold high academic standards, safeguard the free exchange of ideas on campus, and ensure that the next generation receives an intellectually rich, high-quality college education at an affordable price.
