    Live and Learn Just Outside of Philly

    Spend the summer at one of America's leading liberal arts colleges just 13 miles from Philadelphia. The serene and stimulating 200-acre campus is known for its award-winning landscaping and architecture. But beyond its beauty, Haverford houses a diverse, intellectual community with over 50 academic, residential, and athletics buildings

    Take courses with world-class instructors in STEM, Social Sciences, Law & Government, Medicine, Business, and more. Our engaging, hands-on curriculum allows students to further their knowledge in their academic area(s) of interest. Outside of class, explore the on-campus arboretum with over 400 plants species, study by the duck pond and gardens, or take a trip to Philly to take in all the sites.
