Freedom is a word we hear every day. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to pursue happiness. But freedom is also about how we use our God-given gifts and abilities. It represents something for which to constantly strive. Faith and freedom are the pillars upon which Grove City College is built — they are fundamental parts of everything we do and hope to accomplish. We are committed to helping and encouraging students to pursue excellence in every area of human endeavor.
Since 1876, Grove City College has been bringing the best of these worlds together—creating an experience that is academically rigorous and authentically Christian at an amazing value. Plus we offer more than 130 clubs, sports, and activities and service programs — so there’s always something to do and plenty of opportunities for fun.

But what does this mean to you?
It means that if you are serious about academics, you will enjoy being part of a community of 2,500 learners dedicated to pursuing scholarly achievement in the humanities, the sciences and the arts.
It means that if you are serious about your faith, you will understand why we don't shy away from the critical questions that religion raises or the answers that Christianity offers. Here you will find faith playing a central role in the classroom, extra-curricular activities, residence halls, and of course, the chapel.
It means that if you are serious about your fun, you will appreciate the more than 130 student groups and 27 Greek organizations you can get involved in. From music and drama, to faith and society, to business and entrepreneurship, you will have no problem keeping your social calendar full.
If that's not enough, we are an amazing value. In 2011, Consumers Digest magazine ranked us as the No. 1 "Top Value" private liberal arts institution in the nation. The total cost of a Grove City College education (room & board, books and expenses included) is less than $25,000.
