Outdoor Education

Facilities & Equipment

The Masinter Outdoor Education Center, a renovated 10,000-square-foot timber-frame barn, houses Mercersburg’s Outdoor Education (MOE) program. 

MOE is dedicated to safely introducing students to activities that stretch their potential. With MOE’s facilities, and a little help from our sponsors, we’re able to provide the high-caliber gear that a budding outdoor enthusiast needs, whether it’s a harness, climbing shoes, mountain bike, tent, or sleeping bag. That means we’re able to outfit a group of students for a day of rock climbing, a two-week mountaineering expedition, multiple-day biking trips, or any other adventure.
Founded in 1893 in the heart of Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic, Mercersburg is a private, coed, college preparatory boarding school with approximately 435 students (15 percent are day), grades 9-12 and postgraduate.
We offer 170 courses, including AP and Honors, more than $7 million in financial aid, 26 varsity sports, and a state-of-the-art performing and visual arts center.
Located 90 minutes from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, and within easy driving distance of New York City, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh.
