Construction Updates

We are thrilled to share that, after years of planning and preparation,  we broke ground on the new facility that will house our PreK, Kindergarten, and Pursuit, our after school programming. 

This momentous occasion was made even more special as we revealed that the building will be named in honor of three remarkable educators -- Patti Wright, Anne Swift, and Ann Lyle. Together they have contributed over 100 years of dedicated service to Harding Academy and our Kindergarten program. This building will serve as a lasting tribute to their legacies, embodying the values they instilled in their students: curiosity, empathy, and a love for learning.

We are committed to keeping you informed as we start construction.  The following information provides an overview of the logistical changes in the routines of campus, and the safety measures implemented to ensure the safety of the community.  We appreciate the attention and expertise The Parent Company brings to this process.
