Welcome from Ashleigh Wilkes, Acting Head of School
Thank you for your interest in Harford Day School. We welcome the opportunity to meet you and share with you the amazing opportunities awaiting your child and family in our school community. Whether you are searching for a rigorous academic program with small class sizes, character and leadership development, foreign language, exposure to the arts, or competitive athletics, Harford Day School has all of this and more.
Founded in 1957, Harford Day School is the only independent, PreK3 to Grade 8, AIMS accredited school in Harford County. At Harford Day, you will discover a profound commitment to lifelong learning, hands-on experiences, individualized attention, and a caring, inclusive community.
Your child will be taught by highly qualified teachers who nurture and guide their students and get to know you and your family personally. The faculty have a vested interest in the implementation of the curricula and programs, and the autonomy to create their own customized units and lessons. We do not teach to a test, nor do we adhere to Maryland state standardized testing requirements. The teachers, coaches, administrators, and advisors at Harford Day are eager to work in close partnership with our families. Most importantly, your child will participate in a dynamic, comprehensive educational experience - one that cultivates each student’s intellectual, social, physical, emotional, and creative qualities.
Driven by the mission upon which the School was founded, and focused upon inquiry-based learning, a Harford Day education provides a gift meant to enrich the mind, body, and spirit of every student; its benefits evident not only while in elementary and middle school, but for years to come.
The best way to learn about our programs is to visit and see Harford County’s preeminent PreK-3 through Grade 8 academic environment for yourself. Plan your visit today to see how we Make Every Day Count!
