An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. These wise words spoken by Ben Franklin reflect the firm tradition upon which Linsly was founded in 1814. Students inherit a love for learning from an enthusiastic, inspired faculty who teach a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum. Our 65-acre campus, just one hour from Pittsburgh and two hours from Columbus, provides attractive facilities for diverse athletic and extracurricular activities. The Linsly Outdoor Center offers an experience where students challenge themselves to do things they never thought possible.
