Merit Scholarships

Lower and Middle School students collaborate

The Academy is proud to offer two merit scholarship opportunities for students, both current and new. For more information about these scholarship opportunities or need-based financial aid, please contact the Admission Office.


George C. Hoopy '26 Scholarship

This renewing scholarship is available to new students entering the Upper School program. This scholarship is designed for students with an exceptional academic background, who participate in co-curricular activities both in and outside of school, such as community service, fine and performing arts, and athletics, and who are otherwise well-rounded. Each year, one scholarship will be awarded to a new 9th grade student offering 25 percent of each year's tuition. Applicants for the Hoopy Scholarship will be evaluated based on academic merit and well-roundedness of the applicant.



The Spong Family Scholarship

This one-time scholarship is available to 8th grade Academy students who have re-enrolled for 9th grade. This scholarship is funded through the bequest of Marian M. Spong, which provided over $300,000 to the Academy's endowment in support of student scholarships. Except for students formerly named as Corporate Partner Merit Scholars (*received before 2018-19 before this program was discontinued), all current 8th graders are eligible to apply for the Spong Family Scholarship. This merit-based scholarship is awarded as a percentage of the student's 9th grade net tuition and does not take financial need into consideration.  Applications for the Spong Family Scholarship are available online and are due March 15, 2020. Late submissions will not be accepted.


IB Scholarship for Summer Study

This scholarship provides travel funds for national or international travel and summer study for up to four current or prospective students to an academic or service learning program.  Students currently in 10th grade (at the Academy or elsewhere), who are pursuing a full IB Diploma or planning to take four or more IB Certificate classes during 11th grade, are eligible to apply for the award.  Be sure to learn more about the International Baccalaureate Diploma program at Harrisburg Academy and past IB summer study scholarsInterested in applying?  Please contact the Admission Office to learn more about this particular scholarship. Applications for the IB Scholarship for Summer Study are currently not available - check back in early spring 2020 with an anticipated due date of June.Save
