Patrick Henry College is a small school with big ambitions, and some would say out-sized influence. Its stated goal is to prepare Christian men and women to lead the nation and shape its culture with biblical values. It promotes strict interpretation of the Bible, which means science professors teach that creationism is both biblically true and consistent with observable fact.
Patrick Henry College is dedicated to training a new generation of Christian politicians --and it's doing just that. Its students are among the nation's brightest — with internships in the White House, with Republican politicians, and at conservative think-tanks.
