Welcome to Bryn Athyn

  • Brickman Center Fountain


    Since 1877, Bryn Athyn College has been providing our students with ways to connect more deeply with their studies, their spirituality, their community, and one another. We go beyond simply helping our students find a job after graduation; we equip them to lead a more fulfilling life. We are intentionally and proudly small, with a student-faculty ratio of 6:1, while our beautiful 130-acre campus in the Philadelphia suburbs gives our students room to explore and develop as people.

    Our People

    When you’re a student at Bryn Athyn, you’ll notice classmates, professors, faculty, and even our president will frequently ask how you’re doing. The unique twist? They’re genuinely interested in how you’re doing. It’s a hallmark of our warm, welcoming community that is truly interested in helping our students succeed. Those professors are not just friendly–they’re deeply accomplished scholars, with impressive degrees, experiences, and resumes. Best of all? With an average class size of 14, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn directly from them.

    Our Place

    Beautiful. Spacious. Immaculate. There’s a positive description for every one of the 130 acres on campus. While buildings like the Bryn Athyn Cathedral have history and jaw-dropping craftsmanship from a different era, we also have new buildings that meet the needs of today’s students. Here, you can walk from a 100-year-old Gothic cathedral to a year-old state-of-the-art video gaming room. Our campus borders the quaint town of Bryn Athyn, which is just 14 miles north of Center City, Philadelphia, giving students the best of many worlds.

    Our Purpose

    Quite simply, we want our students to live rewarding, meaningful lives. That’s obviously a large goal, but it’s truly in our DNA. Since our founding, we have been dedicated to a New Church approach to education and life. We welcome all faiths and seek curious thinkers who ask questions and are interested in deepening their spirituality. No judgement. No attempts to convert. Simply a goal to “do good.” Learn more about The New Church here.
