Why Choose Centenary College?

At Centenary College of New Jersey, we hope that every student—whether you’re a high school senior or a working adult—finds the college that’s a perfect fit. Some students want to be in a school with 30,000 other students, but for many, a more close-knit environment with individual attention provides a much richer and more enjoyable experience. That’s exactly what Centenary College has been providing since 1867.
