125 Years of Harker in the Valley

The 2018-19 school year marked the completion of our historic 125th year (that’s the quasquicentennial, if you were wondering)!

Harker was founded in 1893, and the journey from Manzanita Hall to The Harker School has been a momentous one. The 125th anniversary year's theme was “Reflect | Inspire | Achieve,” a triptych designed to honor the school’s past, present and future. This website was created to honor our 125th anniversary year and to share our fascinating history with all for years to come.
