As the #1 private school in the Harrisburg region and the area's only independent day school serving students in preschool through 12th grade, we are proud to be provide opportunities for our students that are different and better than other education options in the area. Superior academic programming aside, we are aware that cost is a key factor in a family’s decision to enroll their child.


We encourage families who believe the Academy may be a good fit for them to explore financial assistance options. 


What do we mean by this? While our financial aid budget is limited, we encourage families who have a need to apply for assistance.


2020-21 Harrisburg Academy Tuition & Fees

We recognize how important it is for a family to have transparent pricing so they can truly budget for a private school education. At the Academy, our goal is to clearly communicate the total cost of attendance. Program necessities that cost extra at other schools — hot lunch choices, books, and after school care – are included with our tuition. Other fees that may be applicable to students are included here (for EC/LS; for MS/US).


How does your child’s Academy educational journey translate to return on investment?  With 100% graduation and college acceptance rates, we know – and our parents agree – that an Academy education truly prepares our students for the global challenges that lie ahead.  Our Class of 2019, with 19 students, was offered over $4.8 million in merit scholarships and awards.


As with most independent schools, tuition at Harrisburg Academy covers less than the actual cost of each child's education.  Every year, support from Academy Fund contributions from parents, alumni, and friends make an Academy education possible for every one of our students.


The Academy is committed to diversity in all forms including economic and provides support to those who qualify.  We are happy to accept monthly payment plans to aid in budgeting and provide merit scholarships, need-based financial aid, and other forms of financial assistance.  In a typical academic year, half of our students receive some level of tuition reduction.

The Academy offers the following payment plans for families:


  • Enrollment Deposit — Deposit of $1,000 due with enrollment agreement (subtracted from balance due; can be reduced for families with financial need)
