The Haverford School has been a leader in boys education since 1884, and we are very proud of the many remarkable Haverford graduates who continue to serve our community and nation.
At Haverford, we create a culture that celebrates boys. We recognize their innate competitiveness, their boundless energy, their need to learn with their hands and by doing, their sense of humor, their sense of justice and fairness, and their age-appropriate learning needs, and we teach accordingly. We develop compassion and empathy, and teach that such traits are the full expression of being a man.
At Haverford, boys are artists, actors, musicians, athletes, and keepers of Haverfords exceptional intellectual and moral reputation. They administer an Honor Code that governs the conduct of all members of the community. At Haverford, it is okay to like poetry, music, and art and, at the same time, compete in the oldest and most demanding secondary school sports league in the country, the Inter-Academic League.
