Established in 1899 as an academy with a college preparatory curriculum for high school students of the Church of the Brethren, Elizabethtown College evolved into a fully accredited, four-year, private liberal arts institution. Located in the heart of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania's largest community of Amish, Mennonites, and Church of the Brethren, Elizabethtown College is home to the internationally recognized Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies. Known for its heritage of being founded by one of the Historic Peace Churches, Elizabethtown College hosts the Center for Global Understanding and Peacemaking. Today, the college is an independent residential academic community representing a wide variety of religious and philosophical perspectives firmly rooted in its commitment to servant leadership, peace, and justice.
