Keuka College, established in 1890 in Keuka Park, New York, is an independent, non-profit, residential, co-educational college which was established by George Harvey Ball. His vision involved empowering the weaker sections of society with knowledge. The college closed down many times due to financial crisis. In 1921 it was re-opened as the Keuka College for Women and it remained so till 1985 when another financial crisis forced the Board of Trustees to admit men.
Keuka College is committed to experiential education, which is demonstrated through the Field Period where students are supposed to spend 140 hours every year for a self-directed learning experience. Keuka's Accelerated Studies for Adults Programs or ASAP caters to the more traditional demands of students by providing Bachelor's and Master's degrees.
Keuka College fields a number of intercollegiate athletics teams and they compete in ECAC, NEAC and NCAA, Division III.
