Harker’s Turning 125!

The 2018-19 school year will mark the completion of our historic 125th year (that’s the quasquicentennial, if you were wondering)! The 2017-18 school year will include some kickoff events as we ramp up the festivities.

Harker was founded in 1893, and the journey from Manzanita Hall to The Harker School has been a momentous one. The 125th anniversary’s theme is “Reflect | Inspire | Achieve,” a triptych designed to honor the school’s past, present and future. Major celebrations include a soft kickoff at the opening of the new performing arts center next spring, and then, in the 2018-19 school year, a themed Family & Alumni Picnic and Alumni Home for the Holidays, and a gala to celebrate our past, present and future.
