About the Cornerstones Campaign

The Harker School’s Cornerstones for Success Campaign has as its central concept that an outstanding Harker education is based on four cornerstones:

  • outstanding students
  • motivating faculty
  • quality curriculum
  • outstanding facilities
Over the course of more than a decade, we have worked to bring the standards of our facilities up to the standards of our students, faculty and curriculum. Our students’ accomplishments over the years have demonstrated their talent and hard work, and they deserve the best facilities possible.

Contributions to capital giving have had a tremendous impact on our students over the years. Our students have benefited from the purchase and extensive renovation of the Bucknall campus for K-5, which opened in September 1998. Following that, middle school students on our Saratoga campus enjoyed the opening of Shah Hall in September 2000, before moving to our middle school campus on Blackford Ave. And our upper school students have made use of Davis Field, Singh Aquatic Center and Nichols Hall, which was completed in August 2008. Coming next: a gym and performing arts center on the upper school campus.

A capital giving donation benefits generations of Harker students to come, by building or upgrading facilities beyond the scope of what annual operations can fund.
