Preparing Boys for Life

Welcome to Haverford!

Thank you for considering The Haverford School for your son. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome your family as part of our community, and to nurture and challenge your son as he progresses from boyhood to manhood.

The Haverford School is an independent, pre-kindergarten-12 day school for boys located on the Main Line in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. We are rooted in a nearly 135-year tradition of academic excellence with a focus on developing boys of strong character and citizenship.

We understand boys and create an environment where they can thrive. Our best-for-boys approach to teaching, mentoring, and coaching ensures an intentional program designed to bring out the best in your son.

It doesn’t happen by chance.
It happens at Haverford.


Within his first year at Haverford, our son began to explode with courage and confidence. He blossomed into a young man in front of our eyes, and acquired a newfound intellectual curiosity. College is a stepping stone to something much bigger for these boys because of what Haverford teaches them. Oray, parent of alumnus
