Geneva College was founded in 1848 in Northwood, Ohio, by John Black Johnston, a minister of the RPCNA; the college was founded as "Geneva Hall", was named after the Swiss center of the Reformed faith movement. After closing during the American Civil War, the college continued operating in Northwood until 1880. By that time, the college leadership had begun a search for alternate locations that were closer to urban areas. After considering several locations in the Midwest, the denomination chose the College Hill neighborhood of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania.
The college constructed its current campus on land donated by the Harmony Society. Old Main, the oldest building on campus, was completed in 1881; the Rapp Technical Design Center was completed in 2002. A major project to reroute Pennsylvania Route 18, which runs through the campus, was completed in November 2007. Improvements to Reeves Stadium and the construction of a campus entrance and pedestrian mall were completed in time for the fall semester in 2009. Two bodies oversee the administration of the college, the Board of Corporators and the Board of Trustees. Both Boards drafted the philosophical basis on which the college rests, known as the Foundational Concepts of Higher Education; the RPCNA still takes an active sponsorship and oversight role in the college: the college president and chairman of the Department of Biblical Studies must be members of the RPCNA, all members of the Board of Corporators and the majority of the Board of Trustees must be RPCNA members. All professors and lecturers in the Department of Biblical Studies must subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith, all full-time faculty and staff members must submit a written statement confessing faith in Jesus Christ and the Christian religion.
