Harpeth Hall

O Harpeth Hall, O Place Beloved

Celebrating 5,500 plus alumnae in 49 states plus Washington, D.C. and 30 countries

When Harpeth Hall students graduate, they join a network of more than 5,500 alumnae across the nation and around the globe. These women — intelligent, ambitious, and determined — represent the very best of Harpeth Hall, a place that, for more than 150 years, has held true to the essential idea that girls deserve an excellent education full of possibilities and purpose.


The Harpeth Hall ConnectHER provides programs and initiatives to foster relationships between alumnae and strengthen connections to the school they love. HHConnectHER operates as a networking group, a book club, a mentoring program, an events manager, and much, much more! Through this platform, our alumnae can empower and support one another building upon the foundation of Harpeth Hall’s career connections and annual events.

The Alumnae Network

Harpeth Hall is committed to keeping our alumnae connected beyond their years on campus. The Alumnae Network is an easy and secure way to reconnect and network with classmates and mentors. The Network combines your public information from LinkedIn and Facebook with the information you have shared with Harpeth Hall, making it a powerful tool that is free and only for our alumnae.

Alumnae Awards and Spotlights

Harpeth Hall honors alumnae with three different awards, the Harpeth Hall/Ward-Belmont Distinguished Alumna Award, the Alumna Spirit of Service Award, and the Harpeth Hall/Ward-Belmont Athletic Hall of Fame. The recipients of these awards are leaders in their professional or athletic fields and serve as an example of all Harpeth Hall students and alumnae. 


Whether it is your 5th or 65th Reunion, Harpeth Hall welcomes alumnae back to campus every five years for their Reunion. Join us for Reunion 2025 as we celebrate alumnae from the classes ending in 5s and 0s on May 2 - 3, 2025. All on campus events are complimentary and open to ALL alumnae, regardless of whether it's your Reunion year or not!

Alumnae Leadership


Dear Harpeth Hall Alumnae,

As president of the Alumnae Association Board, I am privileged to serve with a dedicated group of alumnae who share a commitment to our alma mater. Harpeth Hall’s mission is to educate young women to think critically, to lead confidently, and to live honorably. These timeless principles guide our efforts to empower young women with the skills they need to flourish.

Our alumnae community is a testament to the power of a Harpeth Hall education. With over 5,500 members living in 49 states plus Washington, D.C. and 30 countries, our reach extends far and wide. We represent a diverse range of talents, professions, and life experiences and make an impact in our respective fields and communities.

I would like to take a moment to celebrate a few highlights from the past school year. We commemorated the 50th anniversary of Winterim, which continues to provide students with transformative experiences and inspires a love of learning that extends beyond the classroom. Students received numerous awards and recognition for their academic and extracurricular achievements across writing, engineering, and performing arts including the Scholastic Writing Awards, Grand Prize at Middle Tennessee STEM Expo, qualifying for the Best-in-Nation TEAMS Engineering Competition, and a successful trip to the International Thespian Festival. Our athletic program also excelled, once again claiming five state championships. Additionally, we hosted the International Coalition of Girls’ Schools Symposium, Meaning, Mission & Making Connections, which drew educators to Harpeth Hall from around the globe.

As an alumna, there are many ways for you to stay engaged with our school. Whether through HHConnectHER, Career Day, Winterim for Adults, Sunday on Souby, or Reunion, you will find a wide array of opportunities to connect, give back, and stay involved. Your continued involvement and support contribute to the legacy of excellence that defines Harpeth Hall.

Thank you for your commitment to our school. I look forward to working alongside you as we advance Harpeth Hall’s mission and inspire future generations of young women.

Best regards,
Ellen Green Hoffman ’04
Alumnae Association Board President 2023-2024
