Virtual Revisit






Welcome to Your Virtual Revisit
Wherever you call home, we encourage you to use this web page to connect with our campus community.

Dear students and parents,

Mercersburg Academy has made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 Revisit Days due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision was made to support the public fight against the spread of the virus and to protect the health of our most vulnerable community members. It also aligns with CDC recommendations. We know how crucial Revisit Day can be to a family’s decision-making, and we’re deeply disappointed not to be able to welcome you to campus at this time.

With that said, we’re thrilled to offer you the following resources and connection opportunities (with more to come) as a sort of “virtual” Revisit Day. While nothing can entirely substitute for experiencing Mercersburg Academy in person, we look forward to engaging with you through this page and showing you all that Mercersburg has to offer!

Sincerely,

Anna Crouch
Director of Admission






In an effort to bring a sense of comfort to our newly accepted families, we want to provide you with the following statement of good faith as it relates to enrolling at Mercersburg Academy in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak:

Should any student enrolled at Mercersburg Academy for the 2020-2021 academic year be prevented from attending for reasons directly related to the COVID-19 outbreak, the student shall provide Mercersburg Academy all information and documentation to support his or her inability to attend. Mercersburg Academy will review the request and information and make a determination on how to proceed. Mercersburg Academy may either accommodate the student through virtual education methods (if the situation is deemed to be short term) or, if approved, the signee will receive a full refund of all prior fees paid and will be released from their contract obligations with Mercersburg Academy.
