OVERVIEW OF THE HARPETH HALL SCHOOL

The Harpeth Hall School is one of the country's premier independent college preparatory schools for girls and young women in grades 5-12. A pioneer in the field of women's education dating back to the founding of our predecessor school Ward Seminary in 1865, the school combines a superior program deeply rooted in the liberal arts tradition with proven instructional techniques that are most meaningful for girls. Teachers and administrators cultivate a love of learning, a commitment to honor and integrity, and the leadership skills students need today and in the future. The ethos of the school is vibrant and forward-looking with a rigorous, innovative curriculum and exceptional teaching. In addition, outstanding and extensive arts, athletics, service learning, and co-curricular activities provide students with a rich educational experience. The strength of the school today results from the extraordinary vitality and richness of its past.

The school is situated on a beautiful, college-like suburban campus of 44 acres in the Green Hills area of Nashville. In 2001, a new 20,000 square foot library opened and serves as the information and technology hub of the school. In 2004, the new Middle School building opened shortly after the opening of a new Visual Arts building. The new Upper School building opened in 2007. These main academic facilities bring state-of-the-art teaching methods to the classroom. In 2014, a 60,000-square-foot Athletic and Wellness Center opened. In 2019, the school completed four new tennis courts, a competition grass field, and a new softball field. In addition to these excellent athletic facilities, the school has an outdoor track at the lacrosse and soccer complex with the state's first synthetic turf field for girls.

Harpeth Hall is a national leader in the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning. The campus-wide wireless network was the first in Middle Tennessee. In 1999, Harpeth Hall piloted its one-to-one laptop program. That program expanded to grades 7-12 in 2001 and to grades 5 and 6 in 2005. At every level, the faculty and students use technology to advance learning.

The Harpeth Hall School does not discriminate in hiring or employment practices on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability or any other characteristic protected under applicable state and federal law.

Harpeth Hall is committed to an inclusive program, and candidates with a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion work are especially encouraged to apply.
