School Community

At Harker, parents, faculty, staff, students and alumni form a close-knit community through events, traditions and our common mission.

School Community

On any given day there are up to a dozen different community events happening in the Harker community, whether it’s a student performance, parent lunch, sporting event or a public Harker Speaker Series or Harker Concert Series event. And our big annual Harker Day each October bring students, faculty, parents and alumni together to celebrate our community and have a great time together!


Harker Day

Harker Day is two of our beloved long-running annual events – the Harker Family & Alumni Picnic and homecoming – morphed into one, incredible, stupendous Saturday every October. With games, activities and entertainment for all ages, we continue the tradition of the Harker Family & Alumni Picnic – now in its seventh decade – with a day that celebrates everything that is Harker.


Student Community

At Harker, we’re much more than just an academic hub. Our students cheer each other on in athletics, applaud their friends in school performances, celebrate the activities of the student-run clubs, and just enjoy hanging out together from morning to evening. Our students treat each of our campuses as a second home, with friends and family who play and have fun together, discover new and exciting ideas and celebrate each other's successes.

Donors giving


Your support helps us deliver our students an educational experience that powers their success here at Harker, in college and beyond.

When donors invest in our students, they invest in leading-edge technology that develops the next computer science whiz, global education opportunities that breed a future international diplomat and library resources that champion the next cancer researcher.
