The Haverford School recently installed a state-of-the-art indoor climbing wall. The physical education, health and wellness, and leadership program faculty and staff completed a seven-hour certification and are ready to unveil the climbing wall to our boys. The wall will host physical education classes, clubs, sports teams, and others looking for cooperative, camaraderie-building experiences. "Climbing is an experience like none other," says Jeff Potter, head of the physical education department. "It requires physical strength, endurance, problem solving, trust, teamwork, and responsibility."
This site will serve as your port of call to reconnect with the School and your former classmates, no matter where you are located across the globe. We invite you to explore the tabs at left to learn more about what is going on at your alma mater.
