The King’s College Fun Facts!

Kings does not require attendance at church or chapel services, and students are not required to sign a statement of faith (although faculty are). Instead, students sign an honor code pledging not to lie, cheat, steal, or turn a blind eye to those who do.

During the 2007-2008 academic year, the school enrolled a total of 220 students from 11 countries and 37 states. By the fall term of 2008, enrollment had grown to 258, and the average ACT score of the 2008 incoming class was 28, putting the King’s College in the 90th percentile nationwide.

Patrick Henry College

AKA God’s Harvard, Patrick Henry is famous for its extensive ties to the Republican Party and social conservative groups but has been criticized for the religious interpretations of science that all students and faculty must agree to and continually uphold.

The documentary “God’s Army” exposed the surprising number of students at Patrick Henry College with high level internships in the Bush administration.

Patrick Henry students are asked to acknowledge “Satan exists as a personal, malevolent being who acts as tempter and accuser, for whom Hell, the place of eternal punishment, was prepared, where all who die outside of Christ shall be confined in conscious torment for eternity”, and “Christ’s death provides substitutionary atonement for our sins.”
