I am an alumni and parent who is experiencing great things for my children at Harding Academy. From the classroom to the theater stage to the ball field, Harding competes with integrity and awareness of a higher purpose than grades, awards and State Championships. There are many good public and private
... Read more schools in our city; however, I challenge anyone to find a more well-grounded environment for learning and spiritual influence. There is a great momentum building at this amazing East Memphis campus as her impending new leadership promises a bright and forward-thingking future for the students of Harding. Your child will be loved, prayed for, and surrounded by great peers; I had a wonderful experience as a student and do not blink twice at the tuition cost, as I know my kids are receiving more than just an education: they are receiving a blessing of being part of an experience that will shape them as individuals, regardless of their career path. Harding offers a location, a legacy, and a love for Christ that is imbedded in its cirriculum and programs. Sending your child(ren) to Harding will be the best sacrifice you can make for them!

As a graduate of the Academy, I feel that Harding not only prepared me for college, but also for life. My teachers were experts in their subject, passionate, compassionate, and kind.

NOT CHRIST BASED - after 3yrs we did not renew our contract bacause of a potential move - they pressured every day after and manipulated my insecurities of not moving to sign "just in case". After weeks of pressure I signed and guess what - we moved! They asked us to then perform some questionable insurance

We declined & they sued us within 3 months & filed a judgment even with a payment plan agreed upon by our attorneys. My lesson is that Harding Academy is a business and I should have listened to my husband and not let the school leaders prey on my vulnerability as a loving mother. These people who you think love your children are really run by money not love and NOT CHRIST! Read less

I attended Harding Academy for ALL of my schooling before college. It was an excellent place to grow and learn. I had teachers that would not let me skate by on talent, but pushed me to try my best.

I gave it 4 stars because as I later worked in selective college admissions, I noticed that most Harding Academy students were not pushed to apply and enroll at very selective universities. All students are well prepared to enter 4-year colleges. That being said, Harding Academy is an excellent choice for elementary, middle, or high school. If I lived in Memphis, my kids would definitely be attending my alma mater. Read less

Whatever they are doing works! They teach study and organizational skills that build year to year so they are prepared for hard work and expecting more from themselves.
