Karen Gillespie, Head of Upper School
An HRA education occurs not only in the classroom, but on the athletic fields, the stage, in the art studios and beyond. Students ‘prepare for higher education and for life’ in a multitude of ways under the guidance of caring and committed faculty members.
HRA’s upper school offers an enriching liberal arts program featuring a broad selection of curricular options with more then 90 courses, wide-ranging electives, 25 Honors and AP courses among all disciplines, and includes a capstone independent research project in an area of deep interest to the student. HRA students engage in relevant, real-world exploration through mentorship and internship opportunities with the business world, with local universities and research facilities, as well as through independent studies, summer travel, and community outreach.
