Upcoming Events

Harrisburg Academy's faculty and Admission Office team love welcoming prospective students and their families on-campus to experience the energy and excitement of our school. The admission process should be engaging and intriguing, and we welcome your questions, understanding full well that choosing the right education for your child is one of the biggest decisions you will make as a parent. We can’t wait to connect with you at one — or many — of our diverse range of visit opportunities.

 

"Experience the Academy" Admission Event Series

This series of admission events showcases the Academy’s Preschool-to-12th-grade community connections and our student “products” (writing, artwork, performance, presentation skills, etc.). ETA events feature the Academy's marquis internal programming with the addition of a short admission (30 minutes) component for visitors before the event starts.  Attendance at one Experience the Academy or Open Door series event is highly encouraged as part of the admission process.  Full families, both parents/guardians and children, are welcome to attend together!

Science Night and Admission Event for Prospective Families

Science NightWednesday, Jan. 9, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. in John Butler Davis Gallery

The Center for Experimental Sciences is excited to host Science Night, an evening of hands-on science activities, on Jan. 9, 2019 from 5-6:30 p.m. in John Butler Davis Gallery.  Young scientists (currently in Kindergarten through 6th grade) will love learning about science during this engaging and interactive night of fun.  Stations will be set up for students to build or watch experiments in all areas of science – physics, chemistry, and biology.  There will also be a display of Middle and Upper School science fair projects in Louis Lehrman Gymnasium.  Prospective families -- with students of ALL AGES -- interested in learning more about Harrisburg Academy are invited to a special "Experience the Academy" admission event.  This informal conversation and short school tour will begin at 4:30 p.m., prior to the start of Science Night.

"Open Door" Admission Event Series

This series of admission events is a small-session, division-specific, experiential open houses. Held primarily during the school date, prospective families can see the school (students and teachers) in action while participating in engaging discussions and presentations with our faculty.  For example, experience a violin demonstration from our fine and performing arts department chair, Michael Gamon and hear why we believe in the value of providing a strings program for all JK and Kindergarten students.  Attendance at one Experience the Academy or Open Door series event is highly encouraged as part of the admission process.  Both parents/guardians and children are welcome to attend!  Please register to join us on one of the following dates:

Admission Testing and Play Dates

In addition to welcoming your family on-campus to learn more about our school at an Experience the Academy or Open Door admission event, we also require additional assessment and submitted documentation to move the admission process forward.  Upon our receipt of your child’s application for admission and his/her teacher evaluation form(s), all future students are scheduled for an admission assessment by appointment (Early Childhood - must attend an Admission Play Date; Lower School, Middle School and Upper School - must attend for a full school day to shadow a current student in class and complete benchmark testing to determine a child's readiness to join our program).
