Harrison Smith '20 of Philadelphia selected Church Farm School for his high school experience due to its small, supportive learning environment. A smart, but quiet, young man, Harrison says he didn’t initially see himself as a “leader.”
That all changed his sophomore year when he became president of the Art Club. “I realized that I actually enjoyed guiding students and being looked up to as a role model. Ever since then, I have been taking on the various opportunities given to me. Now that I know what leadership looks like, I feel that I am prepared for college and ready to explore future leadership roles.”
Harrison earned a prestigious summer internship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) while at CFS, and is currently attending Hamilton College, where he plans to major in biology and minor in art.
