Finding Your Voice at Harvey

From the head of school

Every day I am reminded of what an exceptional place The Harvey School is. Our students are active, engaged creators of their own educational experience, demonstrating how thoughtful, caring, confident, creative, and courageous they can be on a daily basis. They use their voices to share their knowledge and tackle big questions, both inside and outside the classroom. Each student’s story and learning experience is unique and encouraged at Harvey, nurtured by a highly committed and dedicated faculty and staff.

Harvey students learn the importance of using their time at school to find, develop, and use their collective and individual voice to promote and advance the essential core values of the Harvey community. They learn to engage in civil discourse, rally for equity and inclusion, and speak truth to power. I have witnessed our students stand up for our core values and against injustice. I have seen them use their voices to encourage each other, work together, support one another, and reach out to the wider community. At Harvey, students become innovative and critical thinkers in a global context. They are challenged to expand their viewpoint to include their impact on and place in a rapidly changing world. Our students, whether in the classrooms or in the hallways, in school or representing Harvey in the community beyond our campus, leave their imprint on the world and on the future.

I hope you enjoy hearing and seeing the stories of many of our students firsthand on the pages of our website. I also invite you to come visit us in Katonah and see our students and faculty in action. We are ready to help you find your voice.
