A Brief Overview

Following years of due diligence, strategic planning, and fundraising committee work, Harbor Day School’s Building and Grounds Committee put forward preliminary plans for the city’s planning commission to approve, unanimously received in June 2019. In November 2019, the Board of Trustees voted to move forward with the first phase of the master plan, which commenced in Spring 2020. The new campus at our current location will have nearly 100,000 square feet of classrooms and other educational and office spaces. As the project moves forward in earnest, more information will be available and this page will continue to be updated. In the meantime, please consider the Frequently Asked Questions page or offer one we have not yet heard in the questions and contacts section below.
