Harrisburg Christian School

Since its founding in 1955, Harrisburg Christian School has partnered with parents to reinforce Christian values taught at church and instilled at home.
We strive to assist students in learning to live and work well with others while also preparing them for successful adulthood and post-secondary educational endeavors.
Harrisburg Christian School offers parents the opportunity to reinforce values they instill at home and in church on a daily basis in school.
Those values are strengthened and the total person developed through challenging classroom academic experiences, extracurricular opportunities, chapels, and social events.
Students participate in physical education, art, music and computer courses and may choose from various extracurricular activities such as competitive athletics, drama and competitions that foster a well-rounded educational development.

All three of my children attended and graduated from HCS. It was by far the best decision we ever made for our family. The teachers were wonderful and cared and prayed for my children. It was like a family.
