Carson Long is only 30 miles from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and 60 miles from State College, a vibrant community and home to The Pennsylvania State University.
Carson Long educators gain the added satisfaction of working with cadets inside and outside the classroom that gives them a greater influence in shaping a cadet’s mind and character. Our instructors have the opportunity to lead athletic and outdoor activities based on their own passions.
The school provides an interactive learning environment in which instructors have a great amount of autonomy in their classrooms and still have the support of a collaborative faculty. Using a college-preparatory curriculum with a high-degree of individual support, teachers can better prepare cadets for college and careers in the 21st century.
