your eyes and think back. Remember the boy you were at age seven, at
twelve, at seventeen, and ask yourself this question: how much of what
I am today comes from having been a part of The Haverford School?
While each of us has his own cache of memories and probably remembers
those years with a whole mix of emotions, we know that in many ways The
Haverford School has helped shape our lives. From the way we see the
world to the forging of our character, from the richness of our
relationships to the values that guide us, The Haverford School has
left its indelible mark.
Just as we have grown and matured and expanded our horizons, so too
has the School. Besides the obvious, ongoing physical transformations
to our campus over the years, the School has never stopped evolving in
the classroom. Today, The Haverford School is a stronger, more diverse
community, providing its students with the ability to meet 21st century
challenges in an educational environment that supports self-discovery
and cultivation of whole child. Even as it evolves, The Haverford
School stays committed to the same ideals that have served so well
since its founding – scholarship, citizenship, and the importance of
character and conduct.
This evolution, based on unchanging core principles, has led to our
remarkable success - a success guided and supported every step of the
way by the commitment of The Haverford School alumni. From the
beginning, it has been alumni concern, involvement, and generous
financial support that have allowed The Haverford School to flourish.
The School has turned out leaders in every field of endeavor, and
perhaps more importantly, produced citizens of the world who have
sought to contribute in any way they can. This is the legacy of the
School, a legacy that justifies its national and international
reputation for excellence in educating boys.
Throughout the School’s long history, every alumnus has been the
beneficiary of those who came before. It is this idea of responsibility
for the future, steeped in gratitude for the past, that is the catalyst
for giving back to The Haverford School. At this particularly
challenging time in our nation’s history, when service has risen to
national priority, we ask that you join in that long line of Haverford
boys and young men, extending across generations, to help those who
follow create a better world.
