Admission Events

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

Admission Events

This may be an unusual year, but our desire to connect and share the Harker community with you remains steadfast. We offer a wide variety of virtual opportunities specifically designed for families, parents or students to get to know Harker through their specific lens, as well as multiple virtual opportunities for your scheduling convenience. 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.
