Only eight other liberal arts colleges in California appear in the highest tier: Pomona, Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Scripps, Occidental, Pitzer, Thomas Aquinas and Mills Colleges. Westmont is just one of two top liberal arts colleges among the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities included in the rankings. Wheaton College in Illinois is the other.
