Torrey Honors is modeled after the great medieval universities like Oxford and Cambridge, and is one of several excellent classical education options in America, though it is one of the few within the Protestant tradition.
The program is interdisciplinary and interdenominational, with scholars and teachers that are Protesting-emerging, Protestant-Calvinist, Protestant-Wesleyan, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox.
Students from Torrey attend graduate schools at Oxford University, Notre Dame, the University of Chicago, the University of Dallas, Yale School of Divinity, and many other top 50 schools. Graduates are well prepared for any practical or academic career.

"I'm jealous. Not only did I get kicked out of Torrey Honors Institute 'cause I was an ass, but I got rejected from Notre Dame."
"Hey don't worry man, you got into UC Riverside. That's a really good school"
"Yeah, you're right. I should be happy for him."
