Academic Disciplines

Exterior of the upper school

Welcome to Haverford’s Upper School, where young men become moral, ethical and productive contributors to our society.

The Upper School offers powerful learning experiences, both formal and informal, prepare Haverford students for success in our rapidly changing world.

In the Upper School:
  • Teachers are well-versed in the art and science of classroom instruction, understanding the importance of close teacher-student relationships to affect learning. Meanwhile, they continually pursue their academic disciplines.

  • Our classes offer the hands-on, up-on-your feet, collaborative problem-solving exercises that boys enjoy and the structured direction and clear expectations that they need.

  • Time designated for extra help, small classes, an advisory program, and the Enrichment and Learning Center helps each student realize his full potential.

  • Our student-run Honor Council ensures that our Honor Code is a vital and educational presence in the lives of the boys.

  • There is no single definition of a Haverford man. We encourage authenticity and passion.

  • Students on the Model UN, Mock Trial, Debate, and Robotics teams regularly earn regional and national honors. Our student newspaper The Index and student literary magazine Pegasus are similarly decorated.
