From The Haverford School

The Haverford School has 138 years of experience in preparing boys for life. We are leaders in educating boys: our best-for-boys approach will help identify your son's passion - and fuel it. We recognize boys' innate competitiveness, their boundless energy, their need to learn with their hands, their sense of humor, and their sense of fairness - and we teach accordingly. We take pride in academic excellence: our rigorous liberal arts curriculum empowers boys to master knowledge in a variety of disciplines, offering experiences in the Design and Engineering Studio, in scientific laboratories at local universities, and in small classes with our industry-leading faculty. We develop men of character: our teachers, coaches, and mentors focus on building compassion and empathy, and teach that such traits are the full expression of being a man. We are rooted in our Honor Code and Principles of Community, and give boys a foundation to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.
