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 with origins in the 1860s, 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 will need in the future. This is a vibrant, forward-looking school 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 43 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 2005, the new Middle School opened, to be followed in 2007 with a new Upper School building. All three bring state-of-the-art teaching methods to the classroom. In 2014, a 60,000-square-foot Athletic and Wellness Center opened. Three campus art studios and a modern photography lab also create a dynamic atmosphere. Excellent athletic facilities include a track, lacrosse, and soccer complex as well as the state's first synthetic turf field for soccer/lacrosse, two gymnasiums, tennis courts, and softball fields.

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.
