Why Do Families Choose The Harvey School?
There are a variety of reasons our families choose The Harvey School, but no matter what, all our students benefit from our welcoming, inclusive community and our dedication to providing a high-quality education with a focus on the strengths and passions of the individual student.
Our teachers and staff have the opportunity to wear many hats, including advisor and coach, resulting in strong student-faculty relationships that keep our students coming to school every day feeling connected, engaged in their learning, and happy. Parents also feel connected through regular communication about their child’s academic and personal development.
This is an important time for children to gain confidence in their abilities, develop good study habits, and form a healthy attitude toward learning. The Harvey School puts students on the right path toward finding success socially, emotionally, and academically. At Harvey, every student has a chance to shine and discover their passion through participation in sports, music, chorus, theater, and fine arts. We believe having exposure to the arts helps students develop problem-solving and visual analysis skills, and has a positive impact on their academic ability.
Athletics, arts, and community service serve as integral parts of our educational curriculum and result in producing well-rounded students with sought-after skills like leadership, dependability, problem solving, and communications. Harvey Signature Programs such as Robotics, Science Trajectories, and the Writer’s Odyssey, along with Senior Bridge and the Senior Independent Project, give students the opportunity to expand upon their academic paths, uniquely preparing them to move onto higher education and beyond.
Students who choose to live on campus enjoy our safe school environment located a short distance from New York City. Our boarding students have the advantage of being part of our close-knit boarding community and enjoying greater access to various campus resources including the art center, athletic center, ice rink, evening study halls, and campus events. Our boarding program is made up of a diverse group with members from the U.S. and around the world. Being on campus full time during the week also gives them extra access to the faculty and their athletic coaches. Best of all, the boarding experience allows students to quickly gain greater independence, self-confidence, and time management skills.
The Harvey School Community
Harvey is a regional school offering both day and boarding programs. Most of our students come from the states of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Within New York, we enroll students from as far south as New York City, as far north as Orange, Putnam, and Dutchess counties, and from every town in Westchester County. Our international students from around the world round out our diverse community.

Our Application Process
We understand that your need to find the right school for your child doesn’t always align with the typical admissions cycle. That’s why Harvey accepts applications and makes admissions decisions on a rolling basis.
Ideally, students enter The Harvey School in sixth grade for Middle School, and ninth grade for Upper School. We do admit students to each of the grades throughout the calendar year when space is available. Our friendly and supportive environment ensures that each student feels welcomed and finds success regardless of when they join our community.
