Academics

Imagine a School Where Students are the Focus

The Harley School’s commitment to academic excellence is unparalleled, delivering a challenging environment and curriculum that creates a diverse and close-knit community, while nurturing individual strengths. Our programs from Nursery through Grade 12 foster a spirit of personal excellence, with students challenging themselves rather than competing with others. Rigorous academic programs and exceptional fine arts curriculum are combined with unique offerings (e.g., empathy, glass making, boat building, organic farming, international service learning), a commitment to community service, and an environment that nurtures creativity. For nearly a century, we have been creating a community of global citizens, once student at a time.

A Safe, Supportive and Challenging Environment for Learning

While our academics are rigorous, we dispense with ranking systems and honor rolls, choosing to focus on developing individual strengths while celebrating the power of working together. This level of personal attention is amplified by an incredible 7:1 student-to-teacher ratio.

Rooted in the progressive tradition, Harley offers an innovative and demanding program in the core academic disciplines, the arts, and experiential learning. With a faculty commitment to each child’s success, students find Harley a safe, supportive, and challenging environment. Class discussion and collaborative learning are highly valued. The school fosters a spirit of personal excellence, encouraging students to challenge themselves.

Children in Nursery through Grade 6 receive written evaluations throughout the year. Students in Grades 7–12 receives both written evaluations and traditional grades.
