Upper School Campus & Facilities
Harker’s upper school campus is an inspiring and spacious place where our students explore their academic passions, try new things and just hang out. The upper school campus is truly a neighborhood for our students, and bustles with activity into the evening and on weekends.
The 12-acre campus includes a new library and 79 large classrooms and labs, some of which are housed in Harker’s LEED Gold certified science and technology center, Nichols Hall. Our budding student scientists have dedicated research space in Nichols Hall where they can conduct long-term research projects, much like the space found only at universities.
Upper school athletics has three stellar facilities: a pool and football field opened in 2009 and an athletic center opened in August 2017. Our performing arts program will move into its state-of-the-art facility in February 2018. Our robotics program enjoys a special space in Nichols Hall especially designed for them. And there are beautiful spaces all over campus for students to just hang out and socialize!
