More than 95 percent of students live on a residential campus in a community dedicated to faith and learning. More than 100 different student organizations, a variety of campus ministries, intramural sports and other activities ensure there’s always something happening at The Grove. Weekly Chapel services and Christian formation programs help students grow in their faith and wisdom.
With an annual tuition of $19,310, Grove City College is the least expensive private college in Pennsylvania and one of the most-affordable nationally recognized schools. U.S. News, The Princeton Review and Forbes rank the College among the leading schools in the nation and a best value, based on cost and outcomes for alumni, who see a great return on their investment in above-average earnings and high career satisfaction.
Forty years ago, Grove City College took the federal government to court to defend its independence and protect academic freedom. As a result, the College accepts no federal funding, including student loans and grants, and is free to pursue its foundational mission as a Christian institution of higher education.
That mission is advanced by the College’s Center for Entrepreneurship + Innovation and The Institute for Faith & Freedom. The Center encourages and assists students as they develop skills to build and launch entrepreneurial ventures. Its program is seen as model nationwide. The Institute is a faith and freedom think tank that advances conservative principles, provides faculty commentary and is a training ground for the next generation of thought leaders.
