Get Started


There are plenty of quality public and private schools out there, so what sets Mercersburg Academy apart?

In a word: geography.

Mercersburg’s location in Central Pennsylvania has shaped its 127-year history and identity. We’re not in or adjacent to a major population center. Instead, the nature of our rural location means that every person who is here—faculty, staff, student—wants to be here. It’s community driven by intentionality, not convenience or osmosis. And that creates an extraordinary campus filled with extraordinary people.

Mercersburg Academy exists to catapult young adults into a season of self-discovery—to help you grow, develop, define your passions, fulfill your potential, and become the best version of yourself. We believe your path to college, character, and career success can run through Mercersburg. Find out why.



Room to express, explore, and excel.


Mercersburg Academy is all about opportunities. It’s at the core of who we are, and every day provides moments inside and outside the classroom for you to grow, discover, and learn.




We look forward to meeting you.

Mercersburg Academy is a place where you can imagine your future and a place where you can create your own story. We promise to be right beside you every step of the way.
