In addition to salaries and benefits that are the best among local independent schools, Haverford is committed to the professional development of its faculty. Through an innovative evaluation and promotion system and by supporting graduate study and continuing education, the School encourages faculty growth at all levels.
The Haverford School is located less than 10 miles from Center City Philadelphia, situated in the heart of the historic Main Line. It is within walking distance from bus and rail stops and centered in a renowned educational region with a high concentration of top schools, colleges, and universities.
The School has 10 buildings with 80 classrooms, two libraries, 11 science labs, five computer labs, two auditoriums, two theaters, eight art studios, and nine music studios. The field house, Lower School, Upper School, and main library have all been recently reconstructed or significantly renovated. Our Upper School and library are LEED Gold certified and contain state-of-the-art scientific labs and research equipment. The building itself plays a role in our teachings on sustainability. We also own six residences adjacent to the campus.
The School’s athletic facilities include multiple basketball courts, four international squash courts, a six-lane pool with a one-meter diving platform, a two-mat wrestling room, a wellness center, and a fully equipped physical training and rehabilitation room. We also have three artificial turf fields, one grass field, four tennis courts, and a four-lane outdoor rubberized track. Our coaches, faculty, and staff use the athletic and wellness facilities on a daily basis.
Our faculty are enthusiastic, continuous learners who are engaged in the lives of our boys, their families, and each other. Haverford enjoys a great sense of community and school spirit; the classrooms, libraries, dining hall, performing arts events, lectures, and athletic contests bring our vibrant community together.
