Faculty Core Purpose
Our core purpose is to nurture a sense of wonder, to instill a will and facility for learning, and to promote cultural understanding, environmental stewardship, and service to others. The pursuit of these goals will inspire students and faculty to combine knowledge with goodness and reflection with action.
The Harpeth Hall community—students and faculty—has chosen respect, integrity, individuality, and trust to be our guiding principles. These values reflect our reverence for expressing kindness toward and acceptance of others, our commitment to diversity, forgiveness, and achieving one's personal best, and our dedication to the service of others.
