Mercersburg Academy enrolls exceptional students who bring tremendous energy and talent to our community and in return benefit from the Mercersburg experience. We recognize that an independent school education is a significant investment for families, and we are committed to making tuition and fees affordable for all qualified applicants.
Each year, Mercersburg awards more than $7 million in financial aid to students from all demographics. In fact, nearly half of Mercersburg families receive merit- or need-based aid, ranging from a few thousand dollars to the full cost of tuition, books, technology fees, and travel.
Financial barriers should never stand in the way of a gifted young person having access to a Mercersburg education. Our ability to provide access to a diverse population of students creates an intentional and unique community where students become engaged global citizens, independent and self-directed learners, and creative and discerning thinkers.
