Upper School Academics
Harpeth Hall’s upper school curriculum aligns directly with our mission: we offer a strong foundation in the sciences, humanities, and arts that fosters creative and critical thinking, promotes global perspectives, and sparks life-long learning. Our students learn to lead confidently both in the classroom and beyond it.
The academic culture in the Hortense Bigelow Ingram Upper School is characterized by intellectual vitality and joy. We encourage girls to take academic risks that equate with their passions and interests and to create a balanced schedule that is tailored to their individual needs. At the heart of each academic experience is our deep understanding of how girls learn best.
Strong student-teacher relationships that foster belonging and spark creativity are central to the learning experience in our upper school: our students feel seen, known, and cared for by our faculty and staff. Stop by any classroom during a visit to campus, and you will witness the inspiring connection between teachers and students that informs our vibrant learning community.
