Grove City College strives to be a highly distinctive and comprehensive Christian liberal arts college of extraordinary value. Grounded in permanent ideas and conservative values and committed to the foundations of free society, we develop leaders of the highest proficiency, purpose, and principles ready to advance the common good.
Grove City College equips students to pursue their unique callings through a Christ-centered, academically excellent, and affordable learning and living experience.
By God’s grace, we remain committed to the same Christian faith embraced by the College’s founders and to seek, teach, and apply biblical truth in all that we do. While we continuously adapt our efforts in relation to the realities and challenges of this world, we serve a God who is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
In everything we do, from classrooms to residence halls, from performance stages to sports venues, we are devoted wholeheartedly to the highest standards of excellence. “…[D]o all to the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31).
We foster life-long community engagement through a dynamic and welcoming campus experience marked by fellowship, service, hospitality, and abiding respect for others as God’s image-bearers.
We honor the financial support and commitment of families, alumni, and friends of the College by managing our resources wisely, especially in maintaining affordability and the beauty of the campus, as we secure the long-term sustainability of the College.
In pursuit of our mission, we value and safeguard our institutional autonomy as a blessing of America’s heritage of freedom.
