Participants in the William Penn Honors Program earn a rare mark.

Our students graduate prepared for deep cultural and professional engagement, critical influence on people and ideas, and humble stewardship of society’s shifts and turns – all in the image of Christ.
The William Penn Honors Program offers outstanding students the chance to:
- Enrich their education with the wisdom of the ages, as they make their way through a great books curriculum that combines the most influential elements of our Western intellectual heritage with the scholarly resources of today
- Pursue rigorous education as a practice in following Christ, as they explore the full depth of their chosen major while also discovering the historical and cultural context of Christian faith throughout the centuries
- Lay the foundation for a life of excellence and accomplishment, as they develop the talents of mind and qualities of character that define whole Christian citizens
- Flourish academically and personally in the camaraderie of a tight-knit community, as they take a four-year journey through the classics with other exceptional students, discuss ideas in intimate class settings, and forge true fellowship of mind in the William Penn Honors Program house right in the heart of campus
