School Notes

  • Within the school`s gates and in the wider world,the identity of Harpeth Hall is found in the lives of its dynamic students.The Harpeth Hall student is a young woman who, like Nashville, is poised for exciting, transformative growth, with limitless intellectual and personal potential.
  • We develop the whole student.
  • Yes, academics come first-but we believe our 21st-century leaders must also be team players and change agents, able to see multiple perspectives and find common ground. Our athletics program challenges our students to push themselves; our visual, musical and performing arts programs offer new forms of expression; and our robust list of clubs, organizations, and service learning projects fosters the strong sense of community that our girls carry out into the world. 
  • Our teachers value rigor, but not at the expense of risk. We teach big thinkers.Our teachers encourage collaboration and instill excellence. They`re thoughtful and intrepid innovators in the classroom and mentors in the lab and the library, on the stage and the playing field. And they`re completely dedicated to educating girls-creating pedagogy and coursework that brings out the very best in their students. 
  • We don`t want economics to stand between us and Nashville`s best students. Harpeth Hall is committed to a student body that reflects Nashville-and to the richness that comes with a diverse, increasingly cosmopolitan population. We celebrate myriad cultures, multiple perspectives, and mutual respect; and, thus, we work actively with parents of qualified daughters to make a Harpeth Hall education accessible and affordable. 
  • Our graduates dream big and go far. Our students are known for being accepted to-and thriving in-the nation`s best colleges and universities. But they certainly don`t stop there. They earn graduate degrees, they launch companies, they become artists, Olympians, neurosurgeons, policy leaders, and community volunteers. They leave Harpeth Hall empowered to take on the world and fully prepared to change it.
  • Our mission is to teach girls and young women to think critically, to lead confidently, and to live honorably. Harpeth Hall is a school that offers an unparalleled educational experience. We invite you to visit Harpeth Hall, a school where girls and young women are inspired to dream big and go far.
