About Holy Spirit College
Holy Spirit College is an independent, authentic Catholic liberal arts college governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees and supported by a distinguished Academic Advisory Board. Holy Spirit College is not affiliated with any religious order or congregation. Holy Spirit College (HSC) was founded in 2005 as an undergraduate college offering courses in the Liberal Arts to students enrolled at Holy Spirit Preparatory School. Graduates of those courses have gone on to study at many of the finest undergraduate institutions in the United States including Harvard, The University of Notre Dame, Emory University, Vanderbilt University and The Naval and Air Force Academies.

In 2009, Holy Spirit College was authorized by the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (GNPEC) to offer the Bachelor of Philosophy (B.Phil.). Spring 2010 was a time of growth and structuring of the HSC program as we entered into an articulation agreement with Ave Maria University, adopting their core curriculum to allow for students attending HSC during the freshman and sophomore years to transfer to Ave Maria and complete a major not offered at HSC. With the finalization of the articulation agreement, formal expansion of program offerings began July 1, 2010.
In August 2010, in addition to its dual credit students from Holy Spirit Preparatory School, the college admitted its inaugural group of full-time undergraduate students pursuing a Bachelor of Philosophy. These students were offered majors in Philosophy, Theology, and Catholic Education, as well as the opportunity to complete additional majors through our partnership with Ave Maria University.
August 2010 also marked the first semester for graduate students enrolled in the Master of Theological Studies program. A Master of Theology program was begun in the spring of 2011. Subsequent years anticipate the development of additional graduate degrees, including the Master of Philosophy.
Holy Spirit College is blessed with a beautiful and mature campus setting shared with both Holy Spirit Parish and Holy Spirit Prep. The college enjoys dedicated facilities within the parish complex including college lecture theaters, a satellite library, a break room, and offices. A student commons room with study, dining, and relaxation areas are located in McDonough Hall.
