An independent college-preparatory school in south-central Pennsylvania, the Academy offers a rigorous academic program to 430 boarding and day students. In small classes, students and faculty work eye to eye and mind to mind, as they deepen their understanding of their subjects.
Outside the classroom, students immerse themselves in theater, sports, music, competitions, and camaraderie. They develop deep friendships with students from next door and from across the world. They explore new concepts and push past their limits. Mercersburg is a place of transformation. Students transform themselves—as they prepare to transform their world.
Mercersburg graduates go on to the nations top colleges and universities. Our alumni include Rhodes scholars, Olympians, and a Nobel laureate. And its no wonder—at Mercersburg, students learn to be stronger, more fulfilled, more aware, more alive.
