Admission Events

Join us for our admission events to learn more about The Harker School.

Admission Events

We offer a wide variety of opportunities specifically designed for families, parents or students to get to know Harker through their specific lens.

The safety of our community and prospective families is our No. 1 priority and we are continually monitoring the state and local COVID-19 recommendations.

We recommend attending at least one event to get to know us (K-6 require attending one event). However, we understand that you have busy lives and don’t expect you to attend all events. The number of events you attend will not affect your application evaluation.

Register for any admission event by submitting an inquiry and creating a Ravenna profile. Already have an account? Please, log in to our admission tool. Should you have any questions, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
