The Silver Academy is simply phenomenal. Children treat each other with such amazing respect. Every child feels nurtured and free to learn. The curriculum is top notch, with foreign language introduced as early as Preschool. The best reading and writing curriculum you will find. On top of the fantastic education, children learn to be generous and support their community.

This is a great school! My daughter has learned so much this year and has made amazing friends! The teachers, administrators and secretaries are the best. The school has a very warm & caring atmosphere & has become my daughter's extended family. Parents are always welcome to be a part of their children's experiences at the school. The after-school clubs offered are wonderful (instrumental music, computers etc.) and there are basketball & swim programs open to the students as well. We are very lucky to have a school like this here in Harrisburg.

The quality of learning here is EXCELLENT! There are many extracurricular activities, but they call them 'clubs'. The parents can also help organize, if they'd like, many cool activities for the kids! Oh, yeah, the kids are also very well behaved, and would make good friends!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
