Harrisburg Academy is unique in the Central Pennsylvania area. Students are not a number here; they are seen, heard, and known. Our family feels a true partnership between us, our son's teachers, and the school's leadership in the success of his education. The special classes that complement our son's wonderful classroom experiences are a huge added bonus, too. No other school in this area provides early childhood students the opportunity to play play a violin, learn Spanish, and participate in lab science activities at age 4. We love this, and more importantly, HE loves this! We also appreciate the diversity of the Academy community and the learning opportunities that come from it.

Harrisburg Academy offers small school advantage with progressive, challenging academics. Within weeks of transferring from public school, the teachers genuinely knew my kids. With only 13-18 in a class, I found teachers can be better teachers. The diverse student population introduced my kids to kids from around the world, with other religious backgrounds and customs. The school has strong arts programs, a new music suite, and cooperates with other schools to offer sports not available at school. They employ a full time college counselor who spends hours getting to know the kids individually to help them find their best college fit. Wow! The Parent Ambassador program helps transition families into the school. It is a significant bonus, included in tuition, by a full time chef; my children are provided fresh and healthy lunches, without the stress of packing. It was initially a difficult decision to transfer my children here, but one of the best choices we ever made. #BestSchoolEver
My child has been able to be a part of so many activities - and she's just in 1st grade! I realize that many parents need the after-school program to watch their children until they're able to pick up the little ones, but my daughter is really benefiting from the programs that are available in that time frame. She has been able to expand her science knowledge, join the swim team, learn about soccer, take extra art lessons, and even play in an orchestra for beginning strings students.

The academics are fantastic, but it's these enriching activities the school provides that keep us at The Academy. It's well worth the investment!
