Secondary School Counseling

Well-rounded, self-assured lower- and middle-schoolers grow into capable, confident high-schoolers. Harding Academy fosters this development through its unique PreK–8 model, as we focus solely on the academic, social, and developmental needs of students between the ages of four and fourteen. Harding’s reputation for nurturing excellent students is our biggest advantage when it comes to placing students in great secondary schools.

Eighth grade is a time to start looking ahead. That can be a daunting prospect, but Harding’s counseling office is there to walk families through the process, from helping them identify the best high-school fit for their child and organizing school visits, to keeping track of deadlines and gathering teacher recommendations, to advocating for students with high school admissions counselors. We know our students—their strengths, their weaknesses, their motivators—and that makes a big difference as we help parents navigate their child’s journey.
