Upper School at Harley is a place like no other. It’s challenging. It’s comfortable. It’s a school where you can build confidence and grow passions.

Faculty members engage students: expanding worldviews, opening new ways of thought, and exploring the joy that comes from learning.

Yes, 100% of our students go on to college—at a list of schools that impress with their sheer breadth and depth, reflecting the experiences our students seek in the next chapter of their lives.

However, being a good test taker isn’t our goal. We look for students who want to rise to learning through experiences, who like to think hard about the world around them, and who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and make a difference in our community.

We look forward to meeting you!
