Experience a La Roche College education! Consistently selected as a “Best Northeastern College” by The Princeton Review, La Roche is a private, Catholic, co-educational college located just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh on 40 acres of wooded suburbs in the heart of the North Hills.  La Roche approaches education very personally—with a 12:1 faculty/student ratio, students aren’t just a number, or a “face in the crowd”—students are valued as active members of the campus community.

At La Roche College, prospective students can choose from over 50 majors and programs.  These vary from nursing and other health sciences to history, criminal justice, business and both interior and graphic design. In fact, La Roche offers the top 10 career majors chosen by college students today.  The college is diverse enough to offer choices yet provides a one-on-one atmosphere, ensuring that students receive personal attention from our faculty. Outside the classroom, La Roche students find their place among student clubs and organizations.  The college also offers a wide range of athletics and intramural programs.  La Roche offers 12 NCAA Division III sports as well as a host of student activities and organizations.    

La Roche offers an affordable private education made possible by generous financial aid.  The average financial aid package is approximately $24,000 per student. Over 94% of students receive financial aid.  In addition, La Roche provides scholarship and other aid opportunities as well as federal loans and grants.  La Roche College welcomes students of all religions and backgrounds and prepares students for active, successful participation in a thriving global marketplace.





La Roche College students bring “light through love” by working at the Nativity San Miguel School, St. James,
in West Philadelphia.




In the Community ...

Students from La Roche College are invited to participate in a variety of service learning projects that range from doing outreach work with the homeless on Pittsburgh’s Northside to visiting senior citizens at local care facilities.  Guided by the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and the Millennium Development Goals, students attempt to reach out to those in need locally and globally as well as addressing environmental concerns. 

Spring and fall breaks are also times when students take trips to work for several days a time to address direct needs but also systemic issues that have led to problems in the first place.  On-going reflection, discussion and proposed solutions help students apply what they are learning for real life solutions. 

By committing to service learning each year of their education at La Roche, students learn how they can be the “best for the world.”
