EDUCATING MINDS & HEARTS Since our 1876 founding weâ€™ve seen education ultimately as a means to growing in wisdom and knowledge of the Lord (Col. 2:3), empowering students to excel in their chosen fields while growing holistically. With an education grounded in the timeless truths of Scripture and a renowned liberal arts core, Grove City will equip you to make a meaningful impact through your vocation as you lead and serve wherever God calls you here or abroad.
FACULTY Our faculty come to Grove City with an inspiring passion for their fields and a commitment to investing in students’ lives as teachers and mentors in and out of the classroom. More than 80% of our 160 fulltime faculty have terminal degrees from such prestigious institutions as Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Yale, Michigan, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Carnegie Mellon, and MIT, to name a few.
HUMANITIES CORE CURRICULUM The Humanities Core grants students of all majors an enriched perspective on the good life and a deeper desire to know the God who reigns at the heart of it. By exploring Scripture and different facets of civilization and culture, you will gain a well-rounded understanding of the world and your place in it. As you prepare for your vocation, the Humanities Core will cultivate empathy, sharpen your critical thinking, writing and other communication skills, and foster a greater appreciation for the dignity of all people.
FA C U LT Y S P OT L I GH T “A good education requires two interdependent skills: asking the right questions and critical thinking. I have had the privilege of studying and teaching at some of the best universities and graduate schools in the US, England, and Israel, and these experiences have taught me the importance of cultivating curiosity and critical thinking both in learning and in life. At Grove City, it is an absolute privilege to teach and mentor students eager to know God more intimately through His word. Whether you sign up for classes on the Old Testament, biblical Hebrew, evangelism, missions, or world religions, you can count on a rigorous and life-enriching exploration of the Bible and theology in all its complexity, simplicity, beauty, and truth.” Dr. Seulgi L. Byun Ph.D., University of Cambridge Chair, Department of Biblical & Religious Studies
David Martin, Switzerland

The Office of International Education will help you land an experience anywhere from Asia to Europe to Latin America and other locations. We also offer faculty-led trips abroad between semesters, as well as various mission trips.

HOW WE PRICE DIFFERENTLY We know the cost and long-term value of a college education can be concerning, and we are committed to dealing truthfully in our pricing and scholarship offerings (Proverbs 11:1). Specifically, we avoid the problematic practice of unfunded tuition discounting—a pricing practice used by nearly every private college that results in students unwittingly funding their classmates’ scholarships. Moreover, this practice of exorbitantly inflating the cost of college and offsetting it with an artificially large scholarship is an intentional and deceptive marketing tactic. It is used widely throughout higher education to entice students and their parents. This often diverts the student’s focus from holistic and lifelong flourishing. Grove City sets its tuition at what it actually costs to educate a student. Our initial price is low, and from there we offer financial aid and scholarships. We never transfer money surreptitiously from one student to another, and our student outcomes are among the very best in the nation. For more info, visit www.gcc.edu/truthfulpricing. Be sure to apply for need-based aid by April 15.

FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE You may know that Grove City College does not accept federal aid in response to its 1984 landmark Supreme Court case, Grove City College v. Bell, but you may not know the reason for our position. In 1996, then-president Dr. John Moore said to a Washington, D.C. think tank, “As a private Christian college, we have legitimate concern about federal interference in what we teach and how we teach it.” Grove City College accepts no federal funding primarily to safeguard the Christian consciences of our faculty and students. Though it is a hard path to walk, over the years we’ve witnessed how this principled stand has positively shaped the minds and hearts of our students as they solidify their worldview and tackle today’s challenges with boldness and humility.
