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.

Top Scores 

At Harrisburg Academy, we teach to the child, not to the test.  And believe it or not, this type of authentic learning yields standardized test scores that far exceed those of their peers.  Whether being compared on a local, national, or even global scale such as the International Baccalaureate, the average Academy student is above-average.

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.
