The Value of Personalized College Counseling

Student Success in the College Search

As a college preparatory school, Harrisburg Academy devotes extensive resources to guiding middle school and high school students through a personalized college counseling experience, including the college selection and application process.  Our dedicated, 12-month college counselor starts the process with students and parents in 8th grade.  Through family meetings, an individualized plan is created to help guide the student through the college search process.  The ultimate goal of the Academy's college counseling experience is to find a top-tier college or university that is the natural fit for each of our graduates.  One hundred percent of Academy students go on to pursue higher education at domestic and international colleges and universities.



In addition to the resources that each individual student has at his or her disposal during the college counseling experience, including the knowledge and conections of our seasoned director of college counseling, access to the Naviance software, and a semester-long college preparation course, Harrisburg Academy offers many college counseling events to help families navigate the process.  The Academy hosts the area's top college fair each spring, with 120-plus colleges and universities sending representatives.  Harrisburg Academy's Spring College Fair is a true community resource, being the largest fair in the area and offered free of charge to all students.  In 2019, we hosted approximately 150 students, representing 21 high schools from across Central Pennsylvania and one.  The Academy also hosts public information sessions and evening college information nights with high-caliber universities (Carnegie Mellon University and Lehigh University have all visited in recent years) that align with our college counseling mission.
