At Patrick Henry College (PHC), students receive a broad-based baccalaureate education that stresses content, the imitation of excellence, the pursuit of knowledge, and the exercise of the whole range of talents that God has given, in the light of the truth that He has revealed in the inerrant Bible.
The Patrick Henry College 63-credit core curriculum
plus foreign language proficiency--consisting of courses in logic, rhetoric, philosophy, mathematics, geometry, music, science, history, literature, theology, apologetics, economics, foreign languages, constitutional law, and political theory--lays a common foundation for advanced learning in each of five major programs. Within the context of the classical liberal arts as a time-tested framework, PHC courses mirror the trivium's emphasis on knowledge (grammar), understanding (logic), and application (rhetoric).
A PHC student culminates his degree with an apprenticeship
that applies the "rhetoric" of creative performance in the field of study. Regardless of major, students are invited to explore the interconnectedness of all the disciplines, reflecting the truth that in Christ "all things hold together" (Colossians 1:17).
Patrick Henry College is accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges & Schools and is certified to operate by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.
WHAT MAKES PHC DIFFERENT?
Patrick Henry College exists to glorify God by challenging the unacceptable status quo in higher education, lifting high both faith and reason within a rigorous academic environment; thereby preserving for posterity the ideals behind the "noble experiment in ordered liberty" that is the foundation of America.
Influencing The World Through Christ:
Patrick Henry College believes that God is the source of all truth, be it spiritual, moral, philosophical, or scientific. For this reason, we seek to educate students in God's truth throughout the entire curriculum. Christian faith and genuine learning cannot be separated; neither is our Christian faith a mere addendum to the liberal learning process. Instead, our Christian faith precedes and informs all that we at Patrick Henry College study, teach, and learn.
