Creative expression

Expressing yourself at Harpeth Hall is natural. Our girls are poets, dancers, actresses, musicians, artists, filmmakers, and that is just the beginning. In whatever way they show who they are, our students are seen and heard here.

Harpeth Hall believes that the arts are an integral component of education. Studies in the arts develop the intellectual skills of perceptual awareness, critical analysis, and creative problem solving. Arts courses convey knowledge and meaning not learned through the study of other subjects. At the same time, they refine and reinforce other basic educational skills. 

Through our arts program and co-curricular opportunities, students are exposed to the varied means of expression inherent in the disciplines of choral and orchestral musicdancetheatre, and the visual arts. Girls discover their passions and emotions and explore new ideas, subject matter, and cultures while creating their own artistic voices.
