Strategic Planning

Our recent NYSAIS 10-year-evaluation was completed in October which lays the foundation for our upcoming Long Range Strategic Plan.

"While this type of review can be viewed with some trepidation, this was not the case at Harvey. I was thrilled by the fact that our faculty embraced it."

Our next building project is the Weil House & Barn Complex (WH&BC) renovation that will transform Harvey's entrance into a welcoming stop for visitors and offer exciting potential for new office and classroom space as well as functional and versatile space within the barn.

The goal is to break ground in fall 2019 with completion in 2020.

MS Volleyball Team: Leadership & Kindness

Middle School volleyball team

These MS girls formed a volleyball team this fall through their own advocacy, and not only had a successful season but demonstrated joy and teamwork out on the court. In fact, they had so much fun that the team will continue practicing and competing during the winter season.

"It was amazing seeing them be so supportive of each other out there on the court."

--Dr. Brendan Byrne

Raise a Hand for Robotics

The opportunity to learn about robotics at Harvey continues to help students find their passion and discover what career paths they want to pursue.

"This program helped me understand that I'm interested in building and coding prosthetics. I tested a prosthetic hand, and that is my ongoing independent project this year."

--Samson, grade 11
