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.

Smaller is Better

At the Academy, we know first-hand the advantages of a small-school community. Unlike public schools, we are not organized on the economic efficiencies of “big” but rather on the basis of best learning practices. With our highly committed faculty, students receive individualized attention, while supported by an active parent-teacher partnership.  Educating the whole child in a safe learning environment is what we do best – and it is, indeed, what’s best.

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.
