History

Founded in 1974 with four students, Harmony School has served over one thousand young people. Harmony School Corporation is an independent, non-profit organization operating early childhood, elementary, middle, high school and community youth center programs.

Harmony School is designed for the development of the “whole person”. The Harmony program enables students to achieve academic excellence, to feel good about themselves, and to see learning as a lifelong activity. It gives them a sense of personal control over their lives.

In 1985, the public school system demonstrated its support by selling to Harmony, for ten dollars, the 25,000 sq. ft. historic Elm Heights school building one block from Indiana University. The renovation of this historic building allowed Harmony to house its entire program under one roof for the first time in its history. Harmony’s 25 faculty and staff members serve around 200 full-time students ranging in age from 3 to 18.
