When it comes to your children's education, you want to feel confident that they are receiving the best fitting education possible.  Whether for life-long learning or social skill development, you demand quality and standards as high as your desire for your child's success.  


But the one-dimensional, grade-based learning system of some educational institutions can put your child in a system that isn't working. The current measuring stick leaves you feeling hopeless and disheartened when your child "just isn't the right fit."


At Harper Learning Academy, we understand your desire and passion for the best education for your children. Like you, we have often been disheartened and frustrated with the "measuring stick" of some academic environments.

After battling the mindset of the learning environments that defined students' value predominately by their GPA or assessment score, the leaders of Harper Learning Academy knew they could see better results. That is why they took a different approach and started Harper Learning Academy.

As a nationally-recognized micro-school located in Byram, MS, our goal is to help children discover how they learn and its connection to their purpose in society.
