Harding Academy is an exceptional K-8 school and has been the perfect fit for our children and also our family. They create the critical balance of challenging my boys but doing so in a nurturing and caring environment. The faculty knows the children individually and works with them to meet their needs at each grade level. They are developing children that are self-assured, responsible and well-prepared leaders. The school community is warm and welcoming and, as parents, we are making friends for life. You simply couldn’t ask for a better school for your children to become their best selves, academically and personally.

Harding Academy is an outstanding private elementary school. It strikes a balance between being academically challenging but also nurturing. It offers countless opportunities to develop leadership skills and critical thinking. For a relatively small school, it also offers a wealth of opportunities in the arts, athletics, technology, and after school enrichment programs. The school abides strongly by its Community Code of values. We think the prek through eight experience here is unparalleled in Nashville and we are so impressed with the leadership opportunities offered for middle schoolers. We have been delighted with the faculty. Our children have blossomed, each in their own way, and we can't think of a better school in Nashville.

Harding Academy, an elementary school in Nashville, TN balances a nurturing environment with strong academics. My child's curiosity is encouraged in the homeroom, in special areas, in competitive athletics, and in the strong arts department. The House system, community code, and buddy program create a warm environment where students encourage each other across grade levels. The faculty are incredible and know my child beyond her grade level. We are so fortunate to be at Harding Academy. We know that our child will be prepared for a lifetime of learning in high school, college, and beyond.

Harding is a wonderful school. We chose Harding because we were immediately struck upon visiting at how it felt warm, caring, supportive, and fun. Since our children have been at Harding that initial impression has only been confirmed over and over again. Teachers are loving, responsive, and experienced, and do an excellent job understanding what each child needs and challenging them individually. My children have SO many opportunities to participate in arts, sports, music, theater, science - the depth and variety of experience they are exposed to is just fantastic. I have really enjoyed the Harding community also - generally the group of parents has been low-key, friendly, and unassuming. I couldn't recommend Harding highly enough!



- a
Teachers are warm, caring, and effective. The teaching method is traditional and a needs to be more "hands on". But I don't doubt that my kids are receiving a good education. The parents are very cliquey, though. Not good assimilation for new parents. Hard to fit it as a new family.
