Grades: 5 - 12 | 659 students
At our college preparatory school for girls in grades 5-12, our sole focus is on educating girls and young women.
Not only does research tell us, but we know from first-hand experience, that girls learn more effectively in a single-gender environment.
That is why every thing we do, from our teaching strategies to our facilities, is designed around how girls learn and succeed.
Through our rigorous curriculum, exceptional teaching and our outstanding arts, athletics and community service programs, our students have many areas in which to excel – whether in the classroom, on the playing field, in the art studio or on stage, in service to others and in one of the many clubs and organizations.
At Harpeth Hall, we provide excellent opportunities and experiences that let our students discover and develop their highest intellectual ability, their creative talents and their connection to the world around them.
