Manor College, a Catholic, co-ed, private college, was founded in 1947 by the Byzantine Ukrainian Sisters of Saint Basil the Great. It is located in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia.

In 1959, Manor College was chartered and incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The college was approved by the State Council of Education Department of Instruction on June 17, 1964.

The legal governing body of Manor College is the Board of Trustees, which is composed of twenty-one members, including lay men and women from the business and professional communities and religious Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil the Great.

Manor College is related to the Ukrainian Catholic Church. Many Ukrainian immigrants looking for higher education in America attend Manor College as a method of easing their transition into American culture. Ukrainian immigrants comprise approximately fifteen percent of the student population.


Catholic education

The primary purpose of Manor College is to provide its students with an education that is based upon the Judeo-Christian tradition. Manor's mission statement believes that the ideals and values of this tradition are an integral part of human existence and give purpose and meaning to education.


Manor College prepares its students, through the first two years of college, with the choice to transfer to a 4-year institution or become gainfully employed through its many vocationally oriented programs such as paralegal, dental hygiene, veterinary technology, and early child care. Caron Dessoye, Coordinator of Part-Time Studies, has helped to incorporate the T.E.A.C.H. scholarship program at Manor College which helps to fund early child care professionals.


The intercollegiate program at Manor College offers a variety of competitive programs for both men and women. The teams are known as the "Blue Jays". The Manor College Athletic teams compete in the National Junior College Athletic Association's 19th Region.
