To quote The Hobbit: "I turn at last to paths that lead home. And where the road then takes me I cannot tell. We came all this way, but now comes the day to bid you farewell."

Next in our series of celebrating big moments in Patrick Henry College's past 20 years: PHC graduates begin clerking for Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.

So, what does it take to be a clerk for the highest court in the land? Have outstanding transcripts, a place on Law Review, and strong references from your law professors. Then you have a shot at one of only 36 coveted spots in the nation.

To date, four of PHC's alumni have earned such distinction as PHC continues the mission to "prepare Christian men and women who will lead our nation and shape our culture with timeless biblical values and fidelity to the spirit of the American founding."

Against the Tide: A Familiar Face On The Big Screen

"The idea of science on the one side and God on the other is dangerously false. What we're dealing with is a worldview conflict."

Dr. John Lennox has debated some of the world's most famous atheists, arguing powerfully for creation. Dr. Lennox demonstrates how science and faith go hand-in-hand.

The Pensmore Foundation recently featured Dr. Lennox and his arguments in their most recent documentary, "Against the Tide."

Way to go guys!

The Patrick Henry College Men's Soccer Team recently beat longtime rivals, Christendom College, in a narrow game. For many of these players—and soon-to-be college graduates—it's one final showdown that they won't soon forget as they move on from PHC.

Number 5 in our series that celebrates important moments in PHC's 20-year history: President Haye's investiture.

In 2015, Jack W. Haye, the College’s inaugural Chairman of the Board, was named President of Patrick Henry College. “Moving to Virginia to become the President of Patrick Henry College was nowhere on my Gantt chart of life projects,” Haye recalled, “but after spending time in prayer with my wife, Carol, and with our family, we knew this was what God was calling us to do.”

President Haye’s presence at Patrick Henry College brings out the best in the people around him. He is a man who demonstrates a commitment to prayer and typifies biblical wisdom and real-world leadership. President Haye’s mentoring, steady guidance, and dedication to the PHC community provide indispensable direction to the College.

“Freedom of Choice is Foundational to Poverty Relief.” That's the winning essay title. Congratulations to Emma Randall for placing 2nd at the 2020 Poverty Cure Summit Essay Competition.

At Patrick Henry College, we aim to provide students with the contextual knowledge and the practical skill to bring those elements together in the workplace. Emma Randall recently exemplified both by taking economic principles and political theory and applying them to international poverty.

The Value of Mentorship

Did you know that mentorship has been a critical part of the classical liberal arts for hundreds of years? The idea of passing down a craft from a teacher to a student goes beyond the idea of a curriculum—or even that of a college education. That’s why here at PHC, we used the tried and true apprenticeship model of education. Our students uniquely benefit from rich, real interactions with their professors. Click below to learn why mentorship is such an important area of emphasis at Patrick Henry College!

The opening of the Barbara Hodel Center (BHC) in 2009 effectively doubled the size of indoor space on campus. It is the largest academic building and gives Patrick Henry College students a center for activity and student life.

The BHC is named in honor of Barbara Hodel who is an early supporter of PHC and who became a voice of wisdom for PHC’s leadership. An original PHC Trustee, she lived a life of high achievement and had been involved—along with her husband, Don—in government and politics for most of her adult life. In August 2007, Barbara suffered an accident that left her a quadriplegic, yet she continued to exemplify a surpassing spirit of joy, devotion to family, and a submission to Christ that continues to inspire the PHC community today.

For Christ and for Liberty

Patrick Henry College is for those who want more than the status quo—to dig deeper, aim higher, and dare greater.

In under two decades, Patrick Henry College (PHC) has established an exceptional reputation as a college that nurtures high-caliber talent through an elite Christian education. PHC teaches students more than just facts. Students learn to think clearly, speak articulately, and write persuasively. The classical approach, combined with distinctive apprenticeships and a biblical worldview, enables our students to serve and lead at the highest levels.

From its founding, Patrick Henry College has never accepted government funding. This allows the college to preserve academic freedom and philosophical integrity. With this freedom, PHC is able to operate and make decisions based on merit and faith without agenda or influence of social engineering.

With this freedom, PHC seeks to educate students in God's truth throughout the entire curriculum. Christian faith and genuine learning cannot be separated; neither is our Christian faith a mere addendum to the liberal learning process. Instead, our Christian faith precedes and informs all that we at Patrick Henry College study, teach, and learn.

Hi, I'm Sarah Schmidtler! I need a ride back to PHC's campus from Dullas International Airport. My flight arrives today at 4pm.
Do you have a women's BB game on FB live tonight?
Dr. Voddie Baucham at PHC! Another reason why we love this school. Try to watch this webcast, you will not be disappointed!
My Deli & Café is hiring for two (2) part time positions covering lunch and dinner shifts. Good pay + benefits. Stop by in person or contact restaurant directly at 540.751.2077. Excellent opportunity for college students and walking distance from campus.
Please remember that today (Tuesday) by 5pm is the last time you can request an absentee ballot in some states. If you are a college student living away from home or have a family member living in a retirement facility-please check to make sure you get an absentee ballot if you can't vote in person.
Really blown away by this courageous story found by PHC alum Matthew Exline - we all need stories like this right now! If you ever think being a history major is outdated, you're wrong... our country needs great historians now more than ever!
Hi I have a friend who is looking for a college student to watch the kids over the summer, if anyone is interested please pm me and I hope this post is allowed.

First home games for Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams vs. Great Basin Christian at 2pm today!
Hello, friends! I am hiring people to canvass (door knock) for the upcoming election. The nonprofit I work for, American Majority Action, is targeting several races around the Commonwealth, a few races right here. As a nonpartisan nonprofit, we don't work directly with campaigns, but target important state races to help elect conservative candidates. Volunteers would access the walk app on their smartphone to follow the walk list as well as access the short surveys (5 questions) they use at the doors. Races we are targeting in Loudoun are Geary Higgins for State Senate (Dick Black's old seat) and Randy Minchew for Delegate. We are targeting three races in PWC, 2 in Richmond, and 1 in Virginia Beach. We are supporting those candidates who are outspoken about defending all life, from conception to natural death. These candidates face opponents who supported or co-sponsored Kathy Tran's pro-infanticide bill last session. Positions are 1099 and pay $15 per hour and hours are flexible. They ideally would include at least some hours on Saturdays, as that's the best day to reach voters. Workers can start as early as this Saturday, so long as I have received necessary paperwork so they can be paid. **These positions are for adults or older teens (ideally, at least 17). So far we have two current homeschoolers signed up (as well as two who have graduated). I'd love to get other home schoolers involved and give them the opportunity to add this to their resume. *You must be pro-life to apply for these positions. All positions will last through Election Day, November 5. Feel free to contact me via Messenger or text on 7036187799 with any questions. Thanks for considering! :)
Hi! Ballenger Farm (right next door) is looking for some strong folks to help move some big old rocks. It's $15/hour. Please message me if you're interested!
“It’s FRIDAY! But Sunday’s coming!!” ✝️ Thinking of Dr. G especially today with a smile in my heart. So thankful for the legacy he left on the PHC family! 💕
