Academics

Albright Collegiate Institute opened in 1895 and was renamed Albright College three years later. Union Seminary became Central Pennsylvania College and, in 1902, merged with Albright College. Schuylkill College, previously called Schuylkill Seminary, merged with Albright College in 1928. Albright’s campus relocated from Myerstown, Pa., to Schuylkill College’s campus, which is the present location of Albright, at the base of Mount Penn in Reading.

The College is named for Pennsylvania-German evangelical preacher Jacob Albright, who founded the Evangelical Association (later known as the Evangelical United Brethren Church). Born in 1759 in Douglass Township, Pa., (now Montgomery County) with the given name of Johannes Jacob Albrecht, the family changed their surname to “Albright” following Jacob’s 1808 death.
