Building New American Founders

Monticello College has one goal: build new American Founders.

In the same way that “True North” is required for precision navigation, America needs to return to her “true north” which requires Americans built from the same stuff as our forefathers.

The “true north” principles required to return to the America of our founding are:
Georgics | Liber | Providence | Public Virtue | Liberty

If you are looking for more than an education to get a job;

If you want to make an impact in a very independent way;

If you dream of a life beyond corporations and government overreach,



Monticello College is unlike any other school in the nation. We invite you to come breathe the fresh mountain air on our rural Utah campus. Explore the Manti-La Sal National Forest to our west and south, tour our farm, greenhouses, orchard, and food forest. Prepare and attend a class on Aristotle, Marx, Jordan Perterson or any number of other authors and share your perspectives. Relish a farm-to-table lunch with Monticello faculty and students. Come circle around the corral and feel the connection and tranquility of students ground working wild mustangs. See for yourself that it’s possible to learn in a place where you can live shared values (And bring your leather gloves and work boots).

We welcome visitors any Friday during the school year except when we are in the field. Please click the “Visit” button below, fill out the form and indicate which day you would like to schedule a visit; our staff will contact you and make arrangements. Part of your visit will be to participate in a colloquium or group discussion. Once the day of your visit is established, you will receive your reading assignment. A tour, interviews with students and faculty will be arranged, and we invite you to join us for a “better than organic” whole campus produced lunch.
