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.
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.
Camps will run from Jun 23-July 27 this summer, including:
Multi-Media Journalism, Entrepreneurship & Economics, C.S. Lewis: Beyond the Lamp Post, Shakespeare on Stage, Strategic Intelligence, Moot Court, Constitutional Law, Leadership & Worldview, and Debate
PHC stands apart as one of the nation’s very best “pre-law” colleges, and our alumni are the proof. The program gives students access one of the nation’s leading pre-law advisors, along with world-class coaching that has made PHC the 10-time national champion in intercollegiate moot court. With an average LSAT score that is well above the 90th percentile, PHC’s graduates are often admitted to the most prestigious law schools in the United States – schools like Harvard, Yale, and Columbia. PHC alumni are prepared to excel, routinely making law reviews, flourishing in law school moot court competitions, earning clerkships with the highest federal courts (including two who are currently clerking at the Supreme Court), and working at some of the world’s most prestigious law firms from New York to San Francisco. And above all, PHC equips students to be lifelong advocates for truth and justice.
