Post Your Event

Although a private school, Harrisburg Academy is mindful of its many areas of responsibility to serving the people of our community.  One way in which we connect with the public is through this section of our website, an area in which we support fellow community organizations by posting their events and opportunities.  Please note - the Academy does not endorse an event or its organizer just because the event has been posted in Community Happenings.

Interested in having your favorite organization's information included in the Academy's Community Happenings page?  Please contact Communications.  Please note, items eligible for publication include:  non-profit events (most), theater events, community sports opportunities, summer camp opportunities (most) or specific sports events being hosted on-site at the Academy.  Items which are not eligible for posting include events or opportunities which conflict with something we offer internally.  We do not post anything advertising for specific businesses, even if they are offering a discount to Academy families.  These groups are encouraged to access our community through Development Office opportunities (please contact Stacy Klann for more information about how to partner with our Development Office).
