Small class sizes ensure that your child is well known and understood by peers and teachers
An inspiring team of teachers ensure that your child develops the capacity to ask questions, think critically, and advocate for themselves.
Careful attention to learning and travel outside the classroom, locally, nationally, and internationally, ensures that your child has the confidence to tackle unfamiliar situations in the world around them and is curious about the way in which the world works.
A strong commitment to service learning and a clear set of Cornerstone Values ensures that your child is aware of the needs of others in their immediate community and the wider world.
Small classes mean all students receive individual attention. No one falls through the cracks. Our student-to-teacher ratio varies by grade with the grades K-3 at 10:1 ratio, and our grades 4-8 at 14:1 on average.

Students in Upper Elementary and Middle School are expected to participate in a multi-age Voyagers Week trip in early spring. These trips range in price from $500 to $2,300. Families can choose an option that both interests their child and works for them financially.
Class Trips may change from year to year, but all students in grades 4 through 8 participate in these annual class trips each May.
For information and planning purposes, the estimated costs of the 2020/2021 Class Trips are as follows:
° This includes a two-week international travel trip.
* This includes the cost of our 7th Grade Trip to Cispus in Fall 2021.

More than $140,000 of Financial Aid was awarded to 28 students in our current school year.
With the right planning and information, families receive a broad range of needs-based Financial Aid awards, and can make an independent education for their children more affordable.
Over that time, we have provided tuition support in the form of Financial Aid to hundreds of families, ensuring that they were able to enroll their students at Harbor, regardless of their financial circumstances.
Harbor School has been, since its earliest days, committed to keeping our independent school affordable.
Since 2018, Financial Aid awards are made on a need-based sliding scale that balances a family’s need with the financial integrity of the school.
We recognize that every family situation is different and that even a small Financial Aid award can make a critical difference.
The first step in realizing a Financial Aid award is to apply through School and Student Services (SSS). This step is part of our admissions and re-enrollment process.
An enrollment application for your child must be received prior to financial assistance determination.
Financial Aid awards are determined anonymously and on a rolling basis by the Finance Committee of the Board.
Financial Aid Awards are developed from the recommendations made by SSS upon the completion of the application process.
Families are informed of an award as soon as possible.
Families must reapply for Financial Aid awards through SSS and the school’s Finance Committee on an annual basis.
As a School and Student Services partner, Harbor School utilizes advanced cloud-based software to connect parents to the Family Portal.
When students enter in Kindergarten they begin a 9-year journey. In that time, the relationships they forge with their peer group and the teachers who take the journey with them is priceless.
Our faculty and staff know children well beyond a single year, and their familiarity with each child’s learning process allows them to truly know each student and what works best for them.
If you are interested in applying now for our current school year, please contact our Admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about our current availability.
If you are not admitted from the wait pool but would still like to be considered for admission during the next academic year, we ask you to re-apply and begin the process again. As a courtesy, a wait pool candidate’s application fee is waived upon re-applying for admission.
From time to time, we receive more applications than available spaces, which means there are eligible students to whom we are not able to offer admission. These applicants meet our standards but due to space limitations are placed in our wait pool. There is no priority to our wait pool – the applicants are not ranked. Should an opening occur, we evaluate the wait pool candidates and select a child who best fits the needs of the class. An opening can occur any time after March and prior to the start of school. We do not carry over our wait pool from year to year.
Acceptance Letters and enrollment contracts are mailed to applicants by early March. Enrollment contracts must be signed and returned promptly to confirm acceptance. If you are applying after March, please contact our Admissions Director to discuss available spaces for the grade your child would be entering.
