Haverford senior Shane Fordham’s grandfather, Carroll W. Braxton, was one of the first African Americans to enlist in the Marines Corps after the branch desegregated their ranks in the 1940s. Shane created a documentary to honor his grandfather; it has been selected to become a permanent fixture at the National Marine Corps Museum in Quantico, Va.
The Arts at Haverford
The Haverford School boasts a rich artistic heritage, approaching the arts as an integral part of each boy's education. We are proud to count many professional performing and visual artists among our alumni ranks.
The arts at Haverford enrich the life of every boy, providing him with ways of discovering and expressing himself. He works side-by-side with faculty who are practicing artists themselves, and who view the classroom and studio experience as integral to their professional growth and creative calling.
Art is an integral part of our vibrant daily life at Haverford; we host master classes and visiting artists, hold an annual Arts Festival, study at museums and galleries, and publish an arts and literary magazine, Pegasus, which was recently granted a gold medal by the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. Our arts program inspires creative thought that transcends disciplines.
