State of the School 2018
Our 3rd annual 'State of the School' address, held in November in The Walker Center for the Arts Lasdon Theater, offered insight into the "health" of our School and reinforced our deep commitment to continual innovation rooted in our mission.
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."
Harvey's robust financial outlook is one with high enrollment numbers and waiting lists for all US grade levels.
Last year's Annual Fund campaign raised close to $1 million with over 92% participation from Harvey parents, faculty, and staff.
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.
8th Grade Leadership Program:
This year our Middle School introduced the 8th Grade Leadership Program in which students will identify critical global issues that resonate with them,then will work with a Middle School mentor to identify how to address their chosen issue on the local level.
"Students will use design thinking to launch an action plan to act locally on a global issue."
Scintilla: Latin meaning "Spark"
Scintilla, our new Upper School program, is a yearlong interdisciplinary, immersive learning experience with faculty and students coming together to form learning communities around a common area of interest. It will culminate in six days of dedicated study during the last two weeks of school.
"We are looking to end the school year with a sparkling, scintillating, educational adventure."
