If you think college is about more than simply earning a degree or preparing for a job, you belong at Patrick Henry College. At PHC, your faith will be strengthened through day-to-day life in a community that centers everything it does – work, worship, and study – around the reality of the Gospel. Your classes will stretch you academically as you interact with seminal texts of the western tradition and engage complex modern issues through discussions led by world-class faculty. And at PHC, you will be able to develop both the practical skills and the spiritual vision that characterize leaders who are ready to be used by the Lord in both public and private settings.
One of PHC’s greatest strengths is its student body. Our students come from across the country and their wide range of talents, backgrounds, and vision create a foundation for a dynamic college experience. United by our Statement of Faith, we welcome students from a wide variety of Christian backgrounds. Similarly, we enthusiastically invite well-qualified applicants from public schools, private schools, and home schools. The diversity of our students’ educational backgrounds adds depth and perspective to each year’s entering class.
