Walk-In Wednesdays

Interested in visiting the Academy but have an unpredictable schedule?  Finding it hard to schedule your personal tour time?  Perhaps you have a friend who is an Academy parent or alumnus/a who has been encouraging you to learn more?  Please join us for an upcoming Walk-In Wednesday on April 4, 11 or 18 — an opportunity to experience the Academy Advantage firsthand without an RSVP.

This event is for all prospective parents interested in learning about the Academy — whether for Early Childhood, Lower School (our elementary school), Middle School or Upper School (our high school).  Drop-in hours are 9 to 11 a.m. and will include a tour of our facilities along with a chance to connect with current faculty — and perhaps, current students and parents, pending availability.  School administrators will be on-hand and ready to answer your questions.  If you are interested or know anyone with interest in Harrisburg Academy, please take this chance to stop in, visit, and discover more about the Harrisburg area's best private school.  Please contact Jessica Warren via email or phone (717-763-7811, ext. 1313) with questions.
