Preparing Boys for Life

Meet Our Tour Guides

Our tour guides are some of the first faces you'll see on our campus. They are the young academics, athletes, and actors who will lead you on tours past the Walk of Virtues, through the Quad, and into our classrooms.

Our tour guide captains—Elijah, Ian, Sam, Bram, and Damian—recently reflected on their favorite features of The Haverford School. They answered a series of questions, covering topics from joy to admiration, hard lessons learned to strong relationships formed. Their responses show the many ways our community lives our mission and embodies our core virtues. As you read through their answers below, imagine your own Haverford journey.

On dedication:

I often see Mr. Tryon in a beekeeping suit tending to the beehives on campus, all while being an amazing history teacher. He's just a snapshot of the incredible faculty and staff at the School.

 

On teamwork:

Nothing beats EA day: The atmosphere, the crowd, and the longstanding tradition dating back years and years ago.

On courage:

Step out of your comfort zone and take advantage of all the great opportunities you have at Haverford. Don't just play the sport you've played since you were five—try a new one. Take a new art class; try out for the musical. The more you put into your Haverford experience the more you will get out of it. 

 

On sharing:

Seeing my peers or faculty go out of their way to reach out—holding the door, saying "good morning"—gives me a positive outlook on the day.

On compassion:

Ms. Loos' steady demeanor and overall love of the world has made me a kinder and more compassionate person. I have learned many important values that I will take with me into my future endeavors, and I owe it all to her.
