A lot can happen over the course of nearly 150 years, and Grove City College’s rich history reflects that. But some things never change. The principles and values that the College was founded to advance are the same ones we hold fast to today, and our commitment to providing the best liberal arts and sciences education in the country is as strong now as it was in 1876.
The reason we go to college is to learn. But at Grove City College, we don’t just teach out of textbooks. Our signature liberal arts curriculum provides students with a unified Christian worldview across the arts and sciences, while our major programs prepare students to become leaders across a wide range of career and professional fields.
Grove City College professors are accomplished scholars with active research agendas. Our faculty invite students to leadership roles in their research, working and publishing alongside them. This mentorship is dynamic, afforded by the small college context, enabling students to gain hands-on experience and expertise.
