PRE-K SELECTION PROCESS:
Harding aims to create a class of young learners which is balanced in gender, represented schools, current families, and new families. For the class of eighteen children, nine spots are dedicated to faculty children, siblings, and legacies and nine spots are dedicated to families new to Harding. When there are more than nine applicants in either pool, a weighted lottery system will be utilized in order to select within the groups in the most equitable and unbiased way. When the class reaches capacity all remaining applicants will be rolled forward as priority Kindergarten applicants for the following year.
