Launched in 2012, Harker's Eagle Buddies program pairs each of our lower students, starting in third grade, with an upper school buddy. This fun program has formed warm connections between our youngest and oldest students, who have special events together each year. In fact, it's not unusual to find Eagle Buddies cheering on their "big sister" or "little brother" at sporting events and performances!
