More than 235 years ago, John Harris, Jr. charted Harrisburg Academy’s future. His vision and philanthropic support were instrumental in transforming the Academy into the area’s only independent, nonsectarian, coeducational day school and arguably, the best private school in Central Pennsylvania.

Like an invisible thread connecting the past to the present, The John Harris Circle links the legacy of John Harris, Jr. with today’s leadership Academy Fund donors.  By joining together, John Harris Circle members are honoring the legacy of the Academy’s greatest benefactor and helping establish a new tradition to inspire others.
