Promoting a Healthy Community Culture


Mercersburg Academy is committed to the safety and well-being of our students and all community members. We believe in creating a positive, respectful, and nurturing culture where adult presence and mentorship frame and support positive peer interactions promoting a healthy and safe environment for our students to learn and grow. In the architecture of Mercersburg’s day, students are surrounded by faculty and staff who are trained to notice changes in routine and look for signs, both physical and emotional, to ensure students are doing well in health and spirit while also encouraging independent growth and development appropriate for their age-level. We are proud of the program we’ve set forth and will continue to do our best to meet the needs of our students and community in an ever-changing and complex world.

The following outlines school policies and procedures that represent a snapshot of our current practices designed to support a healthy community culture. We review our practices annually and amend as necessary. If you wish to learn more about an area, please email the Office of Student Life.
