Nothing quite substitutes for visiting Mercersburg Academy in person. Seeing really is believing.
When you visit Mercersburg, you’ll have the chance to take a tour of the school that will last about an hour. If you’re interested in a particular athletic team, performing arts group, or one of our many clubs and organizations, let us know ahead of time and we’ll try to arrange for you to meet with the adviser or coach of a specific program.
Prospective families are asked to schedule their tour several weeks in advance of their desired appointment date if possible. Please call the Admission Office at 717-328-6173 or use one of the buttons below to arrange your campus visit.
Mercersburg requires a personal interview as part of the application process. Often this interview follows the campus tour, though it may also be planned for a separate in-person visit or virtual appointment.
The interview is designed as a two-way conversation rather than a series of structured questions. We want to gain a better understanding of who you are and what you like to do, but we also want you to have the opportunity to ask questions and to learn more about Mercersburg Academy’s values and traditions.
Prospective students meet one-on-one with an admission counselor for 30 minutes, and parents will also spend approximately 30 minutes speaking with the same admission counselor.
