Welcome to Harker
A Learning Environment Like No Other.
At Harker, we define success as something more than outstanding academic achievement: We believe in providing a world-class educational experience that both inspires and empowers students to explore, learn empathy and kindness, discover their unique talents and passions, and share their gifts to make the world a better place.
This has been equally true as we continue to navigate through the challenges of COVID-19. Whether it was providing top quality distance learning for the 2020-21 school year, or delivering our signature in-person programs, which we have now resumed, we have inspired and challenged our students - and ourselves - in new ways. The social and political challenges of our time have also reinforced our commitment and dedication, as a community, to stand against racism, violence, discrimination and harassment of any kind, and to foster inclusivity, equity and compassion in all that we do.
Our focus on the whole student leads us to offer the type of truly well-rounded education that leads to happier, more purposeful and more fulfilling lives – K through Life.
In this dynamic community, our outstanding faculty and deep academic offerings are enriched with an incomparable array of opportunities for children to immerse themselves in the arts, athletics, extracurricular activities, global education and local community service. Additionally, we empower students to launch projects, initiatives, clubs and more to help them follow their passions and make a difference.
Since the school’s founding in 1893, Harker students have gone on to achieve great success in their colleges and careers. They have also continued to demonstrate a commitment to making the world a better place in ways that inspire us every day.
We invite you to come experience the uniqueness of a Harker education for yourself!
