As an independent school, Harrisburg Academy is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of community leaders and parents.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the development of policy and the institution’s fiscal integrity, while overall management is delegated to the Head of School. Since 2003-04, the Board has committed itself to an annual self-review and goal-setting in keeping with “best practices” as delineated by the National Association of Independent Schools.
