Harpeth Hall offers signature programs for our students, centers for interdisciplinary learning and programming our community.
Service is a critical component of the Harpeth Hall mission. Every student participates in our service program called Public Purpose. Preparing students in and out of the classroom to think critically about local and global issues and inequities, the program is designed to help students in 5th through 12th grade acquire the skills and knowledge required to meaningfully and ethically engage with large-scale problems and actively effect change.
A hallmark of the upper school at Harpeth Hall, this three-week experiential program in January provides students with opportunities for cross-cultural experiences through academic travel, internships in Nashville, New York and Washington D.C., and on-campus courses that stretch their perspectives.
Students immerse themselves in another culture, living, and studying with girls in China, France, Germany, South Africa, and New Zealand.
Global Scholars Program
Upper school students gain deeper and broader knowledge of the world by taking additional global-based courses, participating in global-centered service learning and clubs, and completing a senior-year capstone project.
Seventh-graders and eighth-graders have opportunities to participate in independent research through SEEK (Scholars Engaged in Extending Knowledge). Past SEEK projects included Ebola research, social injustices during WWII, effects of El Nino, and Nashville's electricity distribution network.
