The History Of Allegheny Wesleyan College

history begins with two families, Francis and Helen Price and Lindley and Orpha Hall (members of the Wilburite Quakers) who, in 1943, felt disinclined to send their children to public school. In 1946, the Halls became associated with the Eastern District of the Emmanuel Association, a group that assumed the oversight of the school begun by the two families approximately two miles from the present campus in a room added to their home.

Academic Highlights

Our academic programs are structured to prepare Christian workers for ministerial, missionary, music ministry and Christian education labors.  It is also our purpose to prepare Christian laypersons so they may better serve Christ and the Church.
