Our Community

We are a community of kind, dedicated, passionate learners, and constantly seek ways to understand, improve and explore new ideas and perspectives. From student classrooms to parent education events, from enlightening guest speakers to reunions, there is a shared love of learning that permeates the Harker community.

We are committed to welcoming and celebrating a diverse community of students, and fostering an inspiring, supportive and inclusive space for all. We work with families to make Harker accessible and affordable, and our new scholarship endowment makes that even more possible. We are excited for the ways this endowment will enhance our community.

Finally, we look for families who support our mission and want to partner with us to build a community where students are supported on their own unique journeys, growing at their own pace into the global citizens of tomorrow.

What Makes Us Special?

Many things make Harker special, however our attention to each child’s journey is especially unique. Beginning in the lower school, and continuing throughout each student’s Harker journey, we carefully evaluate the course placement that best meets a student’s talents and interests to ensure that each is challenged, encouraged, engaged and inspired to be their personal and academic best. A vital part of that process involves the offering of extensive curricular and extracurricular offerings to help students discover and nurture talents they may not otherwise known they have. Our goal (and greatest joy) is to help all students uncover their unique gifts. We do this through our deep and varied offerings and through our incredible and inspiring faculty, for whom we search nationwide. Many hold advanced degrees, and all are passionate about teaching and focused on individual student success.

Join Us!

Since 1893 Harker has continually honed our academic methods, programs and curriculum to incorporate the latest best practices in education that have created the innovative and inspiring offerings we have today. With more than 125 years of experience in bringing out the best in children, we are dedicated to continuing that legacy of excellence through our passionate faculty, innovative programming, state-of-the-art facilities and genuine care for each and every student. We warmly invite you to explore all that Harker has to offer!
