At Harrisburg Academy, we view education as an amazing journey of self-discovery and challenges not only met, but surpassed.  Our students, preschool through high school, are well-rounded scholars and artists, talented athletes and musicians, and globally minded philanthropists, and they all benefit from the advantages of a small learning community each and every day — and the advantages are many.

FROM DYNAMIC CLASSROOM EXPERIENCES…
including a curriculum that addresses student interest and skill and is not bound to teach to the test, hands-on, student-driven learning opportunities through the Centers for Experiential Learning & Innovation, and personal college counseling starting in Middle School;

TO STRONG LEARNING OUTCOMES…
including higher test scores than other area students, the IB Diploma learning experience and its merit for students in 12th grade and in college, and a lasting connection to a community of successful industry leaders and alumni;

TO THE STRENGTH OF CHARACTER…
our preschool through high school students build through being a part of a school committed to personal integrity, an Academy education is truly something more and something different.

The Academy is the Harrisburg area’s flagship independent school, and is widely considered to be the best private school in Central Pennsylvania.  We partner with families who value education as a priority in their family setting, seek an institution that encourages deep, authentic learning, and desire an alternative to public and religious school offerings for their child.  Currently, our student body draws from 25 school districts and eight counties in the midstate, representing families of all socioeconomic, racial, religious, and geographic backgrounds.  With a strong, college preparatory-focused liberal arts program, we provide a rigorous core curriculum of “reading, writing, and arithmetic,” science, the arts, and technology; but we also incorporate 21st century learning strategies and innovation into our students’ experience.  Our institution may be 232 years old, but we operate as a forward-thinking school of the future.
