What is an Admission Reception? An admission reception is a gathering for prospective and future families to learn more about the educational opportunities at Mercersburg Academy. The events are typically hosted by a committee of current parents and take place in a home or private venue. We bring our admission office representatives as well as current families and alumni to tell their Mercersburg stories. When the distance is appropriate, we will even bring current students and faculty. Admission materials, slide shows, videos, and presentations by our faculty are all part of the evening. We're visiting a lot of areas this fall, so we hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!
