Preparing Boys for Life


The Haverford School's mission endures through these unprecedented times.

We remain dedicated to the education of boys and young men; our faculty and mentors are providing an exceptional Virtual Haverford experience; and our staff are working remotely to provide full operational support and to keep our community connected. 

The recently passed CARES Act may allow individuals and businesses additional deductions for supporting Haverford. Click here for more information and please check with your tax or other professionals to confirm. Your support matters, now and always.

Together we will prevail. We are #FordsStrong. 


Character at Our Core is a $50M comprehensive campaign.

Character at Our Core will build on our strengths as a school – academic rigor, expertise in the art and science of educating boys, facilities designed to meet the needs of our boys and our curriculum, a diverse and inclusive community, and financial stability including a growing endowment. 

We are forging men of character ... difference makers in their communities. Through the Character at Our Core campaign, we are preparing boys to lead – by word and by action – in an uncertain yet exciting world.

William C. Yoh '89, Board of Trustees Chairman
