Ancilla College, near Donaldson, Indiana, is a two-year private liberal arts college that admits both men and women students. Ancilla College was originally founded by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ in 1937 as an extension of DePaul University for the training of novices and candidates of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. In 1966 the college started admitting the public as a private liberal arts community college. Ancilla College focuses on serving the seven surrounding counties of Indiana. Ancilla College grants associate degrees in multiple programs, from which Ancilla graduates may easily transfer to a four-year college or university, especially via the transfer agreements that Ancilla College has with 14 Indiana colleges and universities. The Latin word ancilla means "slave girl," a reference to the college's sponsor, The Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.


The Ancilla Chargers compete in the MCCAA and the NJCAA. Their soccer, volleyball, baseball and softball games are broadcast by the Regional Radio Sports Network.
