As is often the case with smaller schools, there is a narrower selection of academic and extracurricular offerings than a district such as Searcy's. Having said that, the academics are pretty good. Test scores are inflated a little due in comparison to public schools due to students coming from affluent, higher educated, and highly involved parents (all good things but clearly far from average). The best reasons to send your child here are 1) if your public school is in distress (as many in the delta are), 2) if your kid tends to fall between the cracks and underachieve (it's hard to get lost here), and 3) if you are a member of the Church of Christ and want your kid associating with fellow members for the most part. Otherwise, hang on to your money and save it for their college education.

Love the staff and students! Just visiting from Woodland to see if this is the right environment for my son and I love it. Woodland has been a nightmare with the snobbiest of parents and clueless staff. Harding seems to represent themselves in a very professional and friendly way. Briarcrest has also impressed us as well. Have to make a decision between these two but it cant be worse than woodland.

* Close minded * Rich kids only allowed * They preferred white kids but will take a few minorities * You are not welcome if you are not part of the social "club" in town. * Kids keep to themselves not interested in any relationships with others outside of their "Christian" buble. * Many teachers are phony, hipocrites, self absorbed, etc...and they call themselves Christians. Sickening!! If you want your kid to live in a buble, be closed minded and be shocked when they get out and face the real world, send them to this school.

My son is currently attending harding academy. He is in the first grade and i must say he loves the school and the challenges that are given. As a parent it has taught my son a lot of important factor about life. I do plan to send my daughter to their preschool program. Staff there is just wonderful and caring.
