THE HARDING FUND 2022-2023
Harding Academy parents and faculty alike share the same powerful belief in the endless potential of our children—and a desire to foster a challenging and nurturing PreK-8 educational experience.
The Harding Fund is our annual fund campaign and the critical component of fundraising efforts for Harding Academy. It reflects our shared support for every aspect of our campus that tuition revenue alone cannot cover.
Your collective contributions allow us to invest in Harding's most valuable asset: a dedicated and knowledgeable faculty whose teaching environment encourages collaboration and allows small class size in which each student is engaged, valued, and encouraged.
We believe in our students—and in all the things that are possible when we work together. By supporting The Harding Fund, you directly impact our entire school community in crucial ways. Collectively, we invest in our students' learning, their potential, and their aspirations.
The Harding Fund makes this—and more—possible:
Attracting and retaining first-rate faculty by providing competitive salaries and benefits while also offering exceptional professional development opportunities
A robust Humanities program including multiple opportunities for foreign languages, social studies, and literature
An outstanding Performing Arts program including theater, band, and chorus
A respected, competitive Athletics department (including equipment, uniforms, field maintenance and team travel)
Maintaining and improving facilities that inspire learning, discovery, and achievement
Integrating new technology across all grade levels.
We are thrilled to welcome back 513 students and families for the 2022-2023 school year, and we ask for your support as we seek to inspire a sense of wonder by enhancing learning environments that encourage the thrill of discovery and accomplishment in the classroom.
