All-girls private school welcoming anyone who identifies as female
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV/Gray News) - A Nashville all-girls private school is welcoming transgender students.
Harpeth Hall School, a private, college-preparatory school for girls, says anyone who identifies as female can apply to the school.
This week, school officials shared a statement that “Harpeth Hall is a girls school” and “any student who identifies as a girl may apply to our school.”
“To be one of the first single-sex schools to take a stance on it, you’re going to draw a lot of attention from that,” Courtney Vick, a 2008 graduate of Harpeth Hall, said.
WSMV reports the school is taking a step to include transgender individuals, which Vick supports.
“I do hope that some students who previously didn’t feel comfortable apply to Harpeth Hall now,” Vick said.
A spokesperson with Harpeth Hall said the school’s application process would remain the same, and it receives many applications each year for a limited number of openings.
