The Harding Honors Symposium is a two-week academic program on the Searcy campus designed to challenge, encourage, and uplift high school students who are now in their junior year (students graduating in the class of 2016).
Honors Symposium is a life-changing journey where students from all across the nation come together for the purpose of growing spiritually and academically. This is accomplished by daily engagement with our finest university professors and mentoring with some of our top university student counselors. Students learn about the world in which we live and how each of us fits into the world as Christians. This goal is achieved through stimulating academic classes and fun activities designed to develop group bonding and sharing. We intend to enrich the spirit and expand the mind of each student participant in Honors Symposium.
Three hours of university credit are awarded to all who successfully complete the Symposium. This credit is transferable to the college or university of the participant's choice. The course content is designed to appeal to students of both the humanities and the sciences. At Harding, Symposium credit may be applied to one of the following courses:
In previous years, students from more than 40 states and six foreign countries have attended the Symposium.
