The Liberal Arts are the foundation of a Haverford School education. In order to prepare our boys for life, we understand that they need to master a body of knowledge in a variety of disciplines, and develop a set of skills that allows them to be productive citizens in the world they will help shape.
From JrK through graduation, our academic program provides not only a strong foundation for future learning, but more importantly, a skill set that will allow our students to navigate in and contribute to the ever-increasing, complex world that we inhabit.
Our academic program is intentionally designed for boys, and is both challenging and supportive. Our students learn to:
- Build relationships with others to pose and solve problems collaboratively and cross-culturally
- Design and share information from a variety of communities to meet a variety of purposes
- Manage, analyze, and synthesize streams of simultaneous information
- Create, critique, analyze, and evaluate multimedia texts
- Apply strict reasoning and interpret the results to problems that are not intuitive
- Attend to the ethical responsibilities required by living in a complex world
The Haverford School’s academic program provides our boys the launching pad that allows them to pursue their passions and to be successful in all of life’s possibilities.
