Hellenic College-Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology says

Hellenic College is a unique institution of higher learning. It is the only accredited four-year liberal arts college in the Americas centered upon Orthodox Christian beliefs and enriched by the ideals of a Hellenic classical education. Hellenic College holds fast to the conviction that reason and faith can and must be nurtured together. This dynamic synergy lies at the heart of who we are.
