Why Harrisburg Academy?

Selecting a school is an important and sometimes difficult decision for families.  Here at the Academy, we aim to provide an open and friendly admission process that will encourage a thoughtful, mutual exploration of interests and philosophies.  We encourage you to review our website to learn more about the Academy as a school community, how we compare to other area schools, and how to get started with our admission process.

Since 1784, Harrisburg Academy has helped students discover their inner strengths and develop their abilities in all aspects.  As the area's only co-educational, preschool through 12th grade independent school, we set the standard for academic excellence and serve as an educational leader in Central Pennsylvania, among the best private schools and public schools.  Our faculty works relentlessly to discover the best new technologies, methodologies, and practices to incorporate into their classrooms.  We succeed because we focus, universally, on what we do best – animating our core values to prepare our students to face the remarkable challenges of a global society.

A challenging curriculum, combined with a dedicated faculty, enables each student to reach his or her potential while encouraging the student to contribute his or her special passions to the Academy community.  After high school and when their learning journey at the Academy is complete, we expect our graduates advance to the best colleges and universities in the country and to grow into fine global citizens.

We invite you to join us at one of our upcoming Admission Office or general school events to learn more about our community and see why the Academy is a great fit for your family.  Or, consider stopping by for a Walk-In Wednesday session, which serves as a no-appointment-needed opportunity to experience our classrooms first-hand and meet with an Admission representative.  We look forward to seeing you soon!
