The faculty at Harding Academy are exceptional and engineer curriculum to maximize learning at each grade level.

The community code is very important at all grade levels and develops responsible children who are honest and natural leaders.

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.

The faculty and staff are exceptional. They are experts in their fields. All faculty are full time.

Harding Academy
Amount of homework: Just right

Homework is thoughtful and appropriate by grade level. Middle schoolers have exams at the end of semesters.

Harding Academy
Develops grit: Strongly agree

Athletics is a great place where students are taught to keep trying as well as have grit. All students can participate at the JV level to try a sport as well as learn about it. The Varsity level provides competition at another level. Additionally, students are constantly given vigorous academics (yet nurturing) that develop determination.


Harding Academy
Develops respect: Strongly agree

Posted February 10, 2016

Students are encouraged to be their best self and encourage that in others. Students cheer for students who participate in chess matches, compete in math tournaments, perform the violin in front of the whole school, win the wrestling tournament, perform in a play, get an art award, or succeed in athletics. Accomplishments are celebrated by all.

Harding Academy
Develops empathy: Strongly agree

From my child's first day of school, a middle school student asked to walk my child to her class. When she drops a book, another student offers to pick it up. Students care about one another, help each other on the sports field, and connect across grade levels with the buddy program and House activities.
