About Saint Peter’s University
What happens when you put one of the world’s greatest teaching organizations next to one of the greatest cities in the world? You get Saint Peter’s University, a Jesuit institution of higher education just minutes from New York City, a global center of culture, entertainment, business — and professional and career opportunities.
Saint Peter’s is one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, founded in the same tradition as Georgetown University and Boston College. Established in 1872, Saint Peter’s University blends a unique learning experience shaped by rigorous academics, internships that provide real-world experience, community service, and a genuine, caring community that supports you long after graduation.
The Honors Program
The Honors Program blends academic excellence, curricular innovation and individual attention for select students who are ready to challenge themselves and their professors. Freshman enrollment in the Honors Program is by invitation, based upon SAT scores and high school grade point average.
