Campus Life

Nestled on a forested Allegheny mountainside near the Little Juniata River, the scenic 320-acre Grier campus provides students plenty of space to explore in a secure environment. Students have access to over 10 main buildings, 11 dormitories and cottages, extensive stables and riding rings, athletic fields, and mountain trails.
The Grier campus community nurtures students’ total well-being. The Health Center addresses illness and injuries, the Dining Room serves a wide variety of nutritious meals, the Student Activities Coordinator maintains a robust schedule of activities to keep students engaged and connected. Adding to the caring, family-like environment, many of Grier’s faculty members reside on campus with their spouses and children.

Grier’s campus weaves the traditions of boarding school life of the past with the future-forward academics and life skills students want today. This dialog between the past and the future is evident throughout campus architecture. From buildings dating back to the school’s founding in 1853 clear through to our newest buildings completed only months ago, Grier’s campus is a harmonious blend of traditional and modern architecture.

Throughout the year, the familial atmosphere and community-oriented nature of Grier is reinforced through dorm life, extracurricular activities, and weekend events.
