Gratz College was established in 1895 as a Jewish teachers’ college, the first of its kind in the United States. The Gratz family name extends back to the American Revolution with a reputation for patriotism, philanthropy, and especially education.
More than a century later, Gratz College continues to be on the cutting edge with online education and many new programs for students from a myriad of backgrounds serving in a variety of professions.
Gratz College can offer its students:
- An educational community composed of men and women who are inspired by scholarship and driven to serve through their careers
- A forward-thinking, future-embracing outlook that places a premium on innovative thoughts and methods
- A curriculum that combines theoretical knowledge with hands-on, practical strategies for success
- Education rooted in Jewish values, focused on pluralism and embracing diversity
We’re proud to offer our students access to a Gratz College education through accelerated online study. College education is now part of a life-long pursuit for many students, who return to the classroom throughout their lives as their careers and goals change. At Gratz, we make it possible for mid-career and mid-life professionals to earn a degree without forcing them to abandon their work or family responsibilities.
