Harpeth Hall School
"What I like most about Harpeth Hall is that it's an all-girls' school, but it's also an all-girls' community. We are taught to work hard at Harpeth Hall during classes and also when we are relating to each other."

"At Harpeth Hall, intelligence is not stigmatized, it is encouraged. … I have always been rampantly curious, and Harpeth Hall has provided a medium to explore all my interests."

"Winterim has given me the opportunity to study new and creative ideas that are beyond the realm of academics. Because of Winterim, I now understand the importance of stepping out of my comfort zone and seeking new experiences."

Harpeth Hall educates young women to think beyond familiar boundaries by exploring diverse cultures, communities, and perspectives. Through our global education program, students identify global challenges, investigate solutions, and collaborate with others to transform knowledge into action and develop the skills to succeed in the 21st-century global environment.
Service is a critical component of the Harpeth Hall mission. Public Purpose at Harpeth Hall prepares students in and out of the classroom to think critically about local and global issues and inequities. The program is designed to help students in 5th through 12th grades acquire the skills and knowledge required to meaningfully and ethically engage with large-scale problems and actively effect change.
The Harpeth Hall Center for Civic Engagement empowers young women to become involved and informed citizens, and to appreciate – through action and reflection – what is required for civil societies to thrive. Central to this work is a commitment to support the Harpeth Hall mission of developing responsible leaders who make meaningful contributions to their communities and the world.
Middle school and high school are marked with big transitions and new experiences. This time in a student’s life also holds great potential for personal growth and self-actualization. Harpeth Hall’s life balance curriculum provides an opportunity for students to focus on wellness by exploring the mind-body connection, purpose, movement, nutrition, confidence, relationships, and emotional intelligence.
The words “lead confidently” in our mission guide us to create intentional opportunities for development far beyond being captain of a team, the star role in a play, or a club officer. At Harpeth Hall, each student develops the confidence to lead in her own way. She is aware of the value of every individual and embraces her responsibility to shape the community for the better.
We would love to tell you more about our school and all we have to offer.
