It’s About Finding Purpose in Your Studies

Our religious perspective is based on New Church theology, a form of Christianity that teaches, “All religion is of life, and the life of religion is to do good.” In keeping with this philosophy, our Core Program emphasizes freedom, reason, and action. Our academics are grounded in a spiritual worldview and informed and challenged by liberal arts disciplines, with the goal of helping students develop the ability and desire to be useful. At Bryn Athyn College, it’s not just about you. It’s about how you live your beliefs and what you do to make a difference.
