The Admission Process

Preschool through 12th grade assemblyOnce a family has had the chance to learn about our school and meet various members of our community, the Academy works with them to gather appropriate student information so the school can make an educationally appropriate admission decision. Families normally begin Harrisburg Academy’s application process during the fall or winter months prior to their intended date of enrollment.  Most Academy students begin their enrollment on the first day of the academic year in September, but we do offer rolling admissions and students join us throughout the year. Harrisburg Academy seeks and admits students without discrimination regarding their ancestry, color, creed, national origin, race or gender. Admission decisions are made when the application process has been completed. Applications for financial aid can be made concurrently, but are sepearte from our general application process.

Request Records and Recommendations

Teacher recommendations (using the links in the Documents & Links box) are to be completed by the appropriate teachers and mailed (or emailed) directly to Harrisburg Academy.  Transcript Release Requests (also in the Documents & Links box) should be signed by the parents and given to the previous school, permitting the school to forward transcripts and standardized testing reports to Harrisburg Academy.



Entrance evaluations are required for all candidates, including those entering our Preschool program through 12th grade. Requirements vary by division.
