Preparing Boys for Life


History at The Haverford School high school

The Archeology Project engages freshmen in investigations of unidentified objects from the Penn Museum. Pairs of students examine their assigned object, develop theories of its use and origin, and receive feedback from one of the museum's art historians.

Haverford students are required to complete three years of survey courses in history: Ancient World History, Modern World History, and United States History. These courses provide students with the background knowledge they will need to take full advantage of our rich array of history electives, deeper dives into a variety of times and places. Below you will find descriptions of the advanced (denoted by an *) and standard course offerings.
