Our Alumni

Mercersburg Academy alumni are 12,000 strong, living and working in all 50 states and nearly 100 countries. You’ll be a part of this family, and you’ll enjoy a sense of community, care, and connection that endures long after you graduate.

As artists, athletes, entrepreneurs, educators, engineers, judges, and physicians (to name a few), our alumni are meeting the demands of global citizenship with skills and habits developed in classrooms, dorm rooms, studios, and offices on the Mercersburg campus.

A few of our recent graduates have recorded these video messages for you. If there’s an alum in a particular profession or field whom you’d like to speak to about their life after Mercersburg, let us know and we’ll put you in touch!
