Hathaway Brown's Legacy Program builds on the class color tradition to foster a stronger sense of full-school community and to create connections, friendships and camaraderie across divisions. At the core of the Legacy Program is service, sisterhood and school spirit. The Legacy Program is centered around "legacy groups," sets of mixed-age students, teachers, administrators, and support staff. Specific legacy events are held throughout the school year including a Legacy Day at the beginning of each school year, and legacy groups gather for various traditional school events and activities. These legacy groups are part of the way one belongs to the Hathaway Brown community, strengthening sisterhood while giving all the members of our diverse community a common experience. This program is a hallmark of the Hathaway Brown experience and will resonate with students and community members long after they have left Hathaway Brown.
The Legacy Program consists of 10 different groups each affiliated by class color - Blue, Purple, Green, Red and Rainbow. The Legacy color corresponds to the traditional class color for students. Faculty are assigned to a specific legacy group and stay with that same legacy group for their tenure.
Each of the five legacy groups consists of approximately 190 students and 25 faculty and staff. Each of the five color groups are further divided into 14 smaller legacy groups consisting of 15 people. These small groups include students from three divisions and are a home for students outside of their classrooms, advisor groups and mentor groups.
Legacy Days occur in the fall and spring. On these days the entire school will gather together in their legacy groups to celebrate school unity. We will work on service projects together that will benefit the Greater Cleveland community.
