Bold Ambition Campaign

Endowment & Scholarships

Facilities are a visible investment in today, but Harrisburg Academy’s endowment serves as a long-term insurance policy – a nest egg that will ensure the Academy continues to thrive as the educational leader in the greater Harrisburg region.  Over the past 10 years, the endowment has doubled, in part from the successful Faculty First endowment campaign in 2009, as well as the continuous designation of direct and planned gifts.


Through the Bold Ambition campaign, alumni, parents, and friends can strengthen the endowment in pivotal areas.  The campaign will invest $1.5 million in new contributions to our endowment to support three major initiatives.


Support for students: Financial aid gives talented students access to the advantages of an Academy education.  Currently, we provide over $1.3 million annually in scholarship support (both need- and merit-based) to deserving and talented students. Our goal is to remain accessible and affordable to all families and maintain diversity in our student population for the benefit of all students.


Support for teachers:  Endowment support also will be provided to our faculty – the frontline of the Academy experience.  With campaign support, we will ensure that our extraordinary educators have the resources they need for professional development.  This includes participation in professional conferences and seed-money to support new faculty-driven innovations in teaching, allowing them to pursue teaching and learning opportunities in their local and global community.


Support for the Centers for Experiential Learning & Innovation:  In our commitment to providing the best learning experience for our students, the Academy formed the Centers for Experiential Learning & Innovation. Research confirms the success of experiental learning beyond the classroom, and support for the Centers will allow our students to customize a learning experience that works best for them with support from the Centers directors and faculty.
