The Harrisburg Promise is a partnership between HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College; the City of Harrisburg; and the Harrisburg Housing Authority. The Harrisburg Promise creates a pathway to postsecondary education for youth in Harrisburg, specifically in these areas: Hall Manor, Hillside Village, Hoverter Homes, MW Smith Homes, William Howard Day Homes and neighborhoods within the Steelton-Highspire School District.
In the Harrisburg Promise, participating students will be supported from seventh grade through the end of high school with mentoring and college-preparedness activities. Because we believe finances should never be a barrier to receiving an education, students who have been successful under the Harrisburg Promise will then become eligible to receive the Harrisburg Promise Scholarship from the HACC Foundation to attend HACC. Approximately 40 students are currently participating in the program. For more information, please visit hacc.edu/HarrisburgPromise.
