What makes us special?

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, to reunions, there is a shared love of learning that permeates the Harker community.

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 have otherwise known they had. Our goal (and greatest joy) is to help each student 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.

Since 1893 Harker has continually honed its 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!
