At Harrisburg Academy, education of the “whole child” is our number one priority — and not just for the faculty, staff and administration, but our parents, students, and alumni, as well. 

Every family enrolled at the Academy prioritizes education and recognizes the value of the Academy experience. 

We set the standard for academic excellence in Southcentral Pennsylvania, and we proudly present this series featuring the Advantages of an Academy experience.

Affordable & Accessible

With the goal of having an Academy education accessible and affordable to as many students as possible, we have an ongoing commitment to tuition assistance.  For students in JK through 12th grade, need-based financial aid is available, drawing funds from sources such as the Academy’s endowment and Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.  The Academy awarded $1.2 million in need-based financial aid for the 2014-15 academic year, allowing approximately 35 percent of students to receive need-based aid.  Additionally, over $160,000 was provided merit scholarships to students in middle and upper school.  In total, about 40% of students at the Academy receive tuition assistance, with the average financial aid award being about 55 percent of tuition.

Why do families choose the Academy?  For so many more reasons than just those listed here.  Our focus on character, experience, and outcomes will provide your child the advantages necessary to succeed at school, in college, and in life.  Contact the Admission Office at to learn more.
