It officially opened September 20, 2000, with a class of 92 students. The college eschews federal financial aid and is therefore relieved from Department of Education reporting requirements on demographic makeup and other information. The school does not ask for race on applications.PHC receives all of its funding from tuition fees or donations. The college states that it does not accept any money from the government or any other source that includes terms that supersede the authority of its Board of Trustees or conflict with its foundational statements. PHC adds new facilities and programs only as funds are available. The Home School Legal Defense Association is one of the primary benefactors of the school, and all members of the association receive a $1300 grant if they are accepted as students.In 2010, administrators at Patrick Henry College engaged in a pattern of pervasive covering up of sexual assault by students. Dean of student affairs Sandra Corbitt and other staff worked to minimize or conceal sexual assault reports and shift blame to victims. PHC denied the reports.
