Hardin Valley Academy Reviews
Hardin Valley Academy has been an amazing school for our kids. I love that they have academies within the school—business/law/public affairs, STEM, medical sciences, liberal arts— and seniors can do extra work and projects to get the academy’s “endorsement.” This distinguishes your student from others applying to college and is well regarded by many universities and colleges as a differentiator.
Hardin Valley is a great school that offers so many opportunities that other high schools don't! The teachers are so amazing, and the whole staff is so helpful in getting through the tough times that come with being in high school.
Hardin Valley is unlike any other school I know. It is quirky and jovial. There is a different type of personality at Hardin Valley. Though one may see only the rough competitive nature at sporting events or the 21st century cheerleaders on the side lines, there is a quieter, calmer side within the back hallways and back rooms of Hardin Valley where book club may pour over a new novel, or green actors sharpen their trade, or newspaper jots down the newest headline. Hardin Valley is complete and wholistic; but trust me, without its own flaws. But even the best have a few bumps and scraps, right?
