Harrisburg Academy is widely considered to be the best private school in Central Pennsylvania and our students compete and rank at a national level.
At the 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 since our founding in 1784.
Through our personalized college counseling program, the Academy helps each senior find a top-tier college or university that is his or her natural fit. One hundred percent of Academy students go on to pursue higher education at domestic and international colleges and universities.
Welcoming Students to our International Student Program
Harrisburg Academy has a proud tradition of enrolling students from across the globe, many of whom graduate from the Academy and pursue a college education in the United States. These students live with an American host family during their time at our school, while others move to Central Pennsylvania with their parents. During the past 10 years, more than 70 international students have studied at Harrisburg Academy from countries including Brazil, China, Denmark, England, France, Germany, India, Poland, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School with a multitude of opportunities for international students, we see continued strong enrollment of international and globally minded students in our Upper School.
