In the years following the Civil War, Pennsylvania established the most aggressive orphan educational system in the country and the Scotland School for Veteran’s Children began in 1889 through the efforts of Governor Curtin. The original charter was an educational facility for those whose fathers had died of wounds or disease from their service during the civil war and the mission then morphed over the years and operational cost and political pressure ended the work of the school.

In July of 2012, after the campus had been dormant for a number of years, the property was purchased by Winebrenner Theological Seminary (WTS) whose intent was to utilize the campus as a satellite seminary and other associated educational purposes. In 2017, due to a redirection from the WTS home campus in Findlay, Ohio, the property and buildings were transferred to Scotland Campus.

An international partnership was established that brought high school students from South Korea and other parts of the world. Scotland Campus also then initiated a sports program in basketball / baseball, and those programs expanded and solidified Scotland Campus as a reputable brand in the preparatory sports world. The mission continues to expand and today includes student athletes from over thirty-five countries and varied high school and prep sports programs. Within the last year, Scotland Campus has embarked upon a campus renovation strategy that will expand the number of sports, grow the number of students and program offerings, and serve the community and region.
