Earlham seeks students who are curious and compassionate.

Our academics are rigorous for a reason: We want to help you become the best version of yourself, and our distinctive community will provide the support you need to achieve your goals. At Earlham, education is an all-in, immersive activity that takes place inside and outside the classroom.

Earlham seeks students who are academically prepared and intellectually curious. We also look for students who are comfortable in their own skin and embrace differences.
