About Mercersburg Academy
At Mercersburg Academy, learning is rich, purposeful, and life changing.
An independent college-preparatory school in south-central Pennsylvania, the Academy offers a rigorous academic program to 430 boarding and day students from 26 states and 40 nations. In small classes, students and faculty work eye to eye and mind to mind, as they deepen their understanding of their subjects—and of themselves.
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 nation’s top colleges and universities. Our alumni include Rhodes scholars, Olympians, and a Nobel laureate. And it’s no wonder—at Mercersburg, students learn to be stronger, more fulfilled, more aware, more alive.
