Music, dance, theater, digital photography, and ceramics are among the opportunities available to students at The Harvey School, located on a wooded, 100-acre campus in Katonah, NY. The co-educational college preparatory school, which enrolls students in grades 6 through 12, places a high premium on the performing arts, and its new arts center, which was opened last spring, continues to realize that vision.
The state-of-the-art facility includes a 3,320-square-foot theater, which seats 250 people; a gallery space on the first floor; a large dance studio; a ceramic studio; and a digital art room for digital photography classes and workshops.
Small class size (averaging 12 students) encourages academic achievement and personal growth in an environment that is both warm and supportive.
Students can be challenged by 12 Advanced Placement courses, in addition to the academically rigorous art, drama, music and creative writing programs available at the school.
Three Internet-accessible labs and the integration of computer technology in almost every course are also provided.
The school’s competitive Interscholastic Athletic Program includes football, soccer, field hockey, ice hockey, basketball, lacrosse, rugby, baseball, softball, tennis, dance, cross-country and skiing.
The school offers an optional five-day residential program for students in grades 7 through 12.

School Reviews

Harvey is an incredible school! Students are able to dabble in a variety of activities from sports to the arts, an interesting array of course offerings and the attention of a very talented and devoted teaching and administrative staff. Parents are active and involved and the school has a number of family programs throughout the year. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Harvey is the ability of a student to be both a "jock" and a "theater kid" and be accepted on all levels.
