Grove City College was founded in 1876. From our inception we have endeavored to provide our students with an excellent Christ-centered, non-sectarian education at an affordable cost. The College offers rigorous liberal arts education with an exceptionally strong STEM program taught by a highly respected and dedicated faculty called to serve both the minds and hearts of our students. With over 50 programs of study and a curriculum designed to educate in a holistic and personalized manner, students are equipped with both specialized knowledge in their chosen major as well as the tools to think and communicate to be leaders across a diverse range of professional fields and vocations.
Blessed with a strikingly beautiful, increasingly diverse and friendly campus and located in a picturesque Pennsylvania town an hour north of Pittsburgh, Grove City College offers our 2,500 students a campus life of robust learning and living in the classroom, sports, the arts, community service, and other extracurricular activities. Students enjoy a thriving spiritual life as part of a community that values the foundation of faith. When they graduate, nearly everyone is employed or in graduate school within six months and they become part of a worldwide alumni association that affords close personal and professional relationships for a lifetime. Most importantly, they leave ready to be servant-leaders in their communities with courage and conviction.
We practice what we preach. Coupled with its superior academic programs in a Christian environment, Grove City College remains remarkably affordable and is a top value college in the nation. The College operates on a balanced budget, refuses federal aid and remains virtually debt-free, proving that higher education can operate responsibly by delivering a first-rate education without government funding or mandates. We champion freedom in the marketplace and America’s heritage of ordered liberty.
