Message from the Director

Dear Prospective Parents,

I am delighted that you are considering Harford Day School. Welcome. Come for a visit. Meet our teachers. See our children engaged in amazing activities, learning, and having fun.

As the parent of a student in Harford Day’s Fourth Grade, I know selecting a school for one’s children is among the most important decisions we make as parents. We want to know our children will be supported to meet their full potential and known as individuals. We want them to be in a safe and joyful environment that reinforces their natural curiosity and instills a love of learning. We want to know they will have a broad yet deep range of experiences that allows them to develop in all domains—cognitive, social, emotional and physical. We want to know that they are sensitive to diversity and respectful of others. Finally, we want them to be prepared for the future, to have choices for upper school and beyond. You can be assured that you will find all of this, and more, at Harford Day.

By selecting Harford Day, our families make education a priority and in return they find a supportive community of teachers, administrators, and fellow parents. We understand that providing an independent education for your child(ren) is a long-term commitment. We work with each family to determine if Harford Day is the best fit for your child(ren) and then work to make it a viable investment. If affording Harford Day is a concern, please know that financial assistance is available.

Again, the best way to get to know Harford Day is to see the school in action. Please contact me to arrange a campus visit where you will observe our wonderful teachers doing what they do best. I am also happy to facilitate a conversation with our Head of School, Division Heads, a teacher, a graduate, or a current parent. In the meantime, you may peruse this web site for information about our history, daily life, admissions, and financial assistance.

I look forward to getting to know you and your children!

Sincerely yours,

Diane Russell
Director of Admissions
