What is Pontifex University?
Pontifex University is a Roman Catholic university, loyal to the Magisterium, and grounded in the Catholic intellectual tradition. We offer affordable, high-quality educational programs for credit or for personal enrichment combining online programs with optional in-residence programs, seminars, and workshops. All Pontifex University educational programs are designed to be in accord with this supernatural aim, namely, the transformation of the person so that all they do might be directed to the common good and in accord with the Will of God. We believe, in the words of Pope Pius XI (that):
"The proper and immediate end of Christian education is to cooperate with divine grace in forming the true and perfect Christian, that is, to form Christ Himself in those regenerated by Baptism...For precisely this reason, Christian education takes in the whole aggregate of human life , physical and spiritual, intellectual and moral, individual, domestic and social, not with a view of reducing it in any way, but in order to elevate, regulate and perfect it."
- Pope Pius XI, Divini Ilius Magistri
