An inspiring and supportive community: The Harker School

The Harker School, established in 1893, is a kindergarten-grade 12 private school in Silicon Valley that has earned international recognition for its top academics, quality teachers, and student achievements. Educating more than 2,000 students, Harker is the largest independent school of its kind in California, with each division on its own San Jose campus.

Harker blends strong college-prep academics with rich and extensive offerings in STEM, business, athletics, and the arts. Harker evaluates the course placement that will best challenge and inspire each student to academic excellence, ensuring a motivating and exciting learning environment. Outstanding faculty, many with advanced degrees, and small class sizes are paramount at Harker. Our comprehensive, innovative curriculum features outstanding teaching techniques, diverse educational experiences, and broad, rich extracurricular activities.

Kindness, respect, honesty, integrity, and personal accountability have been in the school’s DNA since its founding. Community service, character development curriculum, and our honor code all encourage, develop, and reinforce these important qualities.

Harker is an inspiring, supportive, and lively community where parents, faculty, staff, students, and alumni form a close-knit community through events, traditions, and our common mission. Our students leave Harker uncommonly prepared for college and ready to make a difference in the world. For more information, visit www.harker.org.
