Harrisburg Academy is committed to an active partnership with its families and as such, looks to engage parents in our learning community.  Two of the more formalized groups are our Parents Association and our Parent Ambassadors group.


Parents Association

The Parents Association is the heart of parent involvement on campus!  Every parent with a child in the school is automatically a member of this group and is invited to attend monthly planning meetings and to engage in the community-building spirit events the Association organizes throughout the academic year.  Taking an active role in the Parents Association is an easy way our parents let their children know they believe their school is special.  (For current parents, click here to login and access specific Parents Association information).


Parent Ambassadors

The Parent Ambassadors are a group of Academy parents and alumni parents who volunteer their time to not only learn more about the Academy, but choose to share their information, passion, and goodwill to friends, family, co-workers, and community members (like through our Academy Advantages booklet, a Parent Ambassador-endorsed piece showcasing the many advantages of an Academy education from those experiencing them first-hand!).  Be sure to ask a parent ambassador if you have questions about the Academy Advantage from the perspective of current parents.


We know from our statistics that most people call the Admission Office because of a personal referral, and it’s the Parent Ambassadors who support the Admission Office with recruiting and retention efforts. Parent Ambassadors routinely connect with current and prospective families to share their personal experiences as Academy parents and why they are proud to be a part of the Academy community.  For current parents interested in becoming a Parent Ambassador, please contact the Admission Office.


Get Involved!

There are many additional ways our parents get involved and help build our dynamic school community, from assisting our Development Office, spending time in their child's classroom or by extending their professional expertise through senior internship opportunities within our Centers for Experiential Learning & Innovation.  Click to read more about parent volunteering opportunities.
