The unique fusion of three distinctives sets Patrick Henry College apart from any other college in the world. PHC prepares its graduates to make immediate and enduring impact for Christ and for liberty.

High Academic Rigor Patrick Henry College

Patrick Henry College rivals the academic rigor of any

Ivy League or elite institution. 


We build a foundation our graduates can rely on for the rest of life. The bedrock of PHC's academic program is its commitment to the classical liberal arts. PHC has an extensive Classical Core curriculum of 63 credits founded on the great texts and ideas that have stood the test of time, starting with the Holy Scriptures. Regardless of major, every student must complete the entire core. This enables faculty to assume prior student knowledge, allowing advanced mastery in upper-level courses. PHC's philosophy of education is not just a sequence of courses, but a conceptual framework and methodology that teaches students how to think, not what to think. 


"The classical style of education gave us the Protestant Reformation, the Renaissance, and the Founding Fathers. Classical education gave us our civilization. It encourages critical thinking and fosters a creative application of knowledge so that we aren't swayed by the currents of culture."
- Gene Edward Veith, Professor of Literature and Provost, Emeritus -

Unwavering Biblical Worldview Patrick Henry College

 High academic rigor and conservative principles are insufficient unless

informed by the belief that God is the source of all Truth.

No matter what the tides of culture might bring, PHC remains steadfast in its mission to educate young men and women for Christ. Patrick Henry College has taken specific measures to ensure our commitment to a biblical worldview. Our Statement of Faith is affirmed and signed by all students, staff, faculty, and trustees. In addition, members of the faculty, administrators, and trustees also affirm and sign a Statement of Biblical Worldview, further emphasizing our Christian mission.


Patrick Henry College is the only college in the nation dedicated to all three distinctives.
