The Christian School Association of Greater Harrisburg (CSAGH) is a unified Christian school district serving students in grades kindergarten through 12th. We’re comprised of two schools on both the east and west shores of the Susquehanna River in south-central Pennsylvania. By operating as a school district, we pool our resources to create vibrant educational communities rich with opportunities for our students. As they grow both academically and spiritually, our students prepare to impact the world for Christ.
CSAGH has operated Harrisburg Christian School (Linglestown), a K-12 school, since 1955 and acquired West Shore Christian Academy (Shiremanstown), PreK-12, in 2017 when the two schools unified and formed a private Christian school district in the Capital Region.
The mission of our united school district is to partner with families and provide for the educational needs of each student. Every child who walks through our doors is viewed as a unique individual, created in God’s image. We strive to sharpen their minds, deepen their faith and help develop their God-given gifts for His glory.
We believe the true measure of success is more than grades or standardized test scores. While these serve as one way to measure a student’s success, we want to help students realize their unique potential and passions so they can grow and thrive–in their academics and faith.
Visit one of our two Christian schools near Harrisburg, PA, and you will discover extraordinary, Christ-centered education that focuses on the individual needs of the student. From our low faculty to student ratio, to our varied extracurricular and service opportunities, students have countless opportunities to sharpen their minds, deepen their faith and develop their talents.
When students attend an accredited CSAGH school, they’re seen as the unique individuals they are, not just names. Our certified teachers and administrators take the time to truly know each student, providing individualized attention you seldom see in an educational setting. One way we do this is through a small faculty to student ratio, which allows us to better meet individual student’s needs, spanning the spectrum from learning support or academic challenge.
Although we administer standardized testing that upholds and often exceeds required education standards, we believe that test results should not label students or determine their overall success. Our rigorous curriculum challenges students and prepares them for their unique futures.
The Bible is the standard that guides how we think, speak and act. We understand how crucial it is to provide our students with spiritual development opportunities so they can invite the Lord to change them inside and out. Weekly chapel, corporate prayer, retreats, service opportunities and more allow our students to grow spiritually as they learn how they can influence the culture for Christ.
