Theme Verse for 21-22: Psalm 126:3 “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”
Dear Christian School Association of Greater Harrisburg Community:
This is an awesome time of the year when we celebrate CSAGH theatre programs and our talented student actors, set builders and musicians. Both West Shore Christian Academy and Harrisburg Christian School students and campus leaders have been hard at work rehearsing, building stage sets, and fine tuning each performance.
This makes me reflect on our theme verse of the year – the Lord is doing great things for us! Through theatre, our students are taking a risk and stepping out in front of hundreds of people and striving to do their best with the talents that God has given them. Our community will be blessed through this effort and each of our students will grow in their faith in Christ through this amazing and challenging performance. I am really looking forward to seeing the shows!
Harrisburg Christian will be presenting Newsies! from March 17-19. West Shore Christian Academy will be presenting Disney’s Sound of Music from March 24-26. Shows at both schools are at 7pm Thursday through Saturday with an additional show time at 2pm on Saturday.

I have some important updates below in our early March CSAGH Connect. I hope you read through this communication and feel connected to CSAGH and our schools.

Pennsylvania Tax Donation Programs
This year more than 60 families and businesses made EITC-OSTC tax deductible donations to either WSCA or HCS which provided $674,435 in financial aid funding. This amazing result allows CSAGH to serve our new and returning families by providing funding for our financial aid program.
Donors who participate (https://www.csagh.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Tax-Credit-Scholarship-Program-Overview-Fall-2020.pdf) receive a tax credit for 90% of their donation for their PA state taxes while funneling their tax dollars to Christian education. Thank you to our 60 participants! Please contact me if you want to participate next year at firstname.lastname@example.org.
