The Biggest Advantage to Working at an Independent School:

Our faculty and staff and the extraordinary environment they have created for exciting and deep learning.

Why I Love Harrisburg Academy:

At the Academy, we make a "world" of learning available for all students and they respond by developing their own "joy of learning."

A Memorable Moment at the Academy:

All of the events that occurred during the Academy's Triple Anniversary year.

My Favorite Book:
"Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln" -- it best demonstrates the unparalleled uniqueness of our great president.  "To Kill a Mockingbird" -- The most beautiful book I've read.

Harrisburg's Only Independent School,
Serving Students Preschool - 12th Grade.
