The Parkville experience

We’re a four-year, private, nonprofit liberal arts school consistently ranked among the top private colleges and universities nationwide. Our 700-acre, historic, tree-lined flagship campus is just five miles from Kansas City, Missouri. We offer a traditional university experience with a wide range of academic programs, small class sizes and a strong commitment to helping you reach your goals.
