One of America’s leading liberal arts colleges, Haverford College offers a rigorous academic program to a close-knit community of students. The campus is located just outside Philadelphia on a serene campus that is a nationally recognized arboretum. Founded in 1833, Haverford is the oldest institution of higher education in North America with Quaker roots and is today a non-sectarian and highly diverse institution. Through its Honor Code, Haverford retains many of the guiding principles of its founders, such as emphasis on community and respect for individual conscience. Haverford’s students enjoy a 9-to-1 student-faculty ratio and come from independent and public schools across the United States and around the world.
