As the area’s flagship independent school, Harrisburg Academy works to partner with families on providing deep and authentic learning experiences for students in a supportive community. Drawing from 27 school districts and six counties, our community includes families who want a strong and challenging liberal arts education for their students that incorporates current learning strategies and innovation. We might be over 200 years old, yet we operate as a forward-thinking school of the future as we consistently look for ways to improve the learning experiences for our students and families.
The Center for Global and Local Citizenship at Harrisburg Academy will present the 9th Annual International Night virtually on Friday, April 16. This unique virtual event allows us to discover the food, culture, and customs of the diverse community of Harrisburg Academy. View cultural dances, taste culinary dishes, and listen to musical performances that highlight Academy families' cultures from around the world.
Interested in sharing your heritage? Send a video of yourself cooking your favorite culinary dish (or just explaining it and showing it off) or performing (less than 5 minutes would be ideal)! Please email your video submission to Lindsay Bowman by Friday, April 9 to allow time for putting the final video together. We invite everyone in the Academy community to enjoy this great event virtually this year!
