A real-life story: How school choice saved my life!

The DiTonno Family

The product of two working parents, Abbi had been enrolled in daycare since she was an infant. Though she hated going to daycare, we had no choice but to enroll her 3 days a week. When the time came for kindergarten, we did some research on our local school district and were not impressed.

We immediately fell in love with the Harrisburg Academy. It had everything we wanted - a large class and a half day program which meant Abbi would still need some form of daycare.

She is currently in third grade at the Academy and doing great! Along with a challenging curriculum, we discovered the added benefit of attending a school that has a very diverse student body, an experience she would not have had in public school. The feeling we get knowing that we have Abbi in a school of our choice is comforting when we think about her future.
