Who We Are

​Who We Are​

Grove City College provides a liberal arts education in the classical sense. Education’s first true purpose, and ours, is to provide a well-rounded curriculum that helps students see the broad intellectual landscape of ideas, people and events that have shaped, and continue to shape, our world.

Our founders fostered the talents of young men and women who would be committed to contributing to the culture in their multiple roles as citizens, consumers, spouses, parents, voters, congregants, employees and entrepreneurs. We celebrate both our diversity and our commonalities.
