Harpeth Hall offers a variety of signature programs for our students, parents, and people in our community.
Center for STEM Education for Girls
Through on-campus courses and a three-week summer institute, students receive hands-on experiences in science, technology, engineering, and math from innovative teachers, working professionals, and Vanderbilt researchers.
A hallmark of the upper school at Harpeth Hall, this three-week experiential program in January provides students with opportunities for cross-cultural experiences through academic travel, internships in Nashville, New York and Washington D.C., and on-campus courses that stretch their perspectives.
Students immerse themselves in another culture, living, and studying with girls in China, France, Germany, South Africa, and New Zealand.
Global Scholars Program
Upper school students gain deeper and broader knowledge of the world by taking additional global-based courses, participating in global-centered service learning and clubs, and completing a senior-year capstone project.
Seventh-graders and eighth-graders have opportunities to participate in independent research through SEEK (Scholars Engaged in Extending Knowledge). Past SEEK projects included Ebola research, social injustices during WWII, effects of El Nino, and Nashville's electricity distribution network.
