About Haverford College

Few schools can equal Haverford College’s sense of community. Haverford’s Quaker roots place a high value on camaraderie and fellowship, and it shows on campus. With almost all of students living on-campus and more than 145 clubs and organizations, college life at Haverford is vibrant, active and close-knit.

Haverford College’s emphasis on community carries into its academics, as well. The school maintains a low student-to-faculty ratio of about 8:1. Nearly all of Haverford’s classes have fewer than 25 students, and about 20% of classes have five students or fewer. These small classes allow for a discussion-based education and a closer, more personal relationship with your professors.

Haverford is constantly finding ways to make tuition more affordable. Its most recent adjustment is to replace student loans with grants in financial aid packages. With fewer loans, you can get through college without worrying about racking up debt.

The application review process at Haverford is thorough and detailed. Though academic excellence is the main consideration, Haverford’s admissions officers consider each applicant as comprehensively as possible. An on-campus interview is highly recommended to help Haverford’s admissions committee get to know you.

Overall Rating

If you're looking for a small-town, small-school experience with smart, engaged students and teachers, Haverford is the place. The social honor code helps distinguish it from other small, liberal-arts schools, and the small class size ensures that you'll get a good education while getting to know your classmates really well. (Too well? Philly's only 20 minutes away by train.)


Overall Rating

Haverford College has been ranked by Forbes 7th among all Liberal Arts colleges and 11th among all colleges and universities. 4 year graduation rate is 4th highest in the nation. Strictly an undergraduate education, all classes are small in number and taught by highly qualified professors. Haverford students receive exceptional individual attention and the quality of academic study is equal to that of ivy league schools. Those who know, know Haverford. Exceptionally high acceptance rate to top graduate schools.
