Gradatim ad Summum  

The motto of Harbor Day School, meaning “Step by Step to the Top,” reflects the importance of a strong primary education. With each grade a student completes, he or she adds more knowledge, allowing for personal growth. Each step taken builds upon the previous step for the comprehensive and well-balanced education for which the School strives. This motto encompasses the mission by allowing for steady personal progress which in turn develops our eager, collaborative, and creative students who are prepared for their secondary education and beyond.
