The mission of Greater Harrisburg Area NAACP Afro Academic, Cultural, Technological, & Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) is to overcome the vicious cycle of low scholastic expectations and achievement that plagues Black undeserved minority youth throughout Harrisburg; to strengthen Black high school students’ academic skills and inspire the confidence they will need to succeed as adults; and, to offer individualized academic mentorship and diverse enrichment activities, of which there is short supply in the Harrisburg public high schools.

ACTSO strives to continue the strong showing of our 2020-2021 program. With the support of the business community, the local competition judges, the area high schools, the parents, the ACTSO Committee members, the Harrisburg Mayor, Harrisburg City Council, Dauphin County Commissioners, State Representative and other stakeholders, ACTSO contestants made one of their strongest showings ever.
