About Us

Welcome to Harrisburg Abraxas Student Academy

Harrisburg Abraxas Student Academy (HASA) is a licensed private alternative school for regular and special education students, grades 6 through 12, in the Harrisburg School District. Our multi-faceted approach offers education, counseling, and a variety of other support services to students experiencing difficulties in the traditional school setting. By holistically meeting the needs of these students (socially, emotionally, academically), the program will help students not only achieve success but also maintain it.

Abraxas has a rich history with a proven record of accomplishments in the development and operations of effective education programs for students in need of such programming. HASA works in partnership with the school district to provide students with the necessary education and social skills to make positive changes in their lives through a TEAM effort (Treatment, Education, Attitude, and Motivation). Through this TEAM effort, we address diverse social issues to direct students toward more responsible lifestyles. We will utilize our experience and expertise in operating clinical programs and school for troubled youths to ensure a sound educational program. We will commit to:

•   Work in partnership with the school district so that students and parents receive consistent services in all aspects of programming.

•   Afford each student and parent an opportunity for quality education in an environment where behavior is safely managed and learning is a positive experience.

•   Work in collaboration with principals, school district representatives, service providers in the community, students’ parents or guardians, and each student to ensure that services are individualized, appropriate, effective, and complete.

Additional Services

  • Adventure and Enrichment activities – outdoor recreational opportunities and field trips to enhance classroom learning
  • School Store – Students can “cash in” on tickets earned for positive behavior and academics
  • After School Detention –for students with significant attendance and/or behavioral issues that require additional treatment
