At HCS, we develop a strong foundation for learning in all subjects. In addition, we provide daily Bible lessons and Chapel once a week. Biblical integration is woven throughout the curriculum, which is vividly displayed in the lives of our faculty and staff.

The focus of the Harrisburg Christian School Middle School Program is to provide students with the academic background that will prepare them for High School, to encourage them to grow in their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, to foster Godly relationships with their classmates, and to develop and practice Christian leadership and service. Courses offered at the Middle School Level are based upon providing students with a diversity of experiences.

Our High School division includes students in the 6th-12th grade levels. We offer a challenging curriculum, including classes for college prep, honors’ and advanced placement students. In addition, students can choose from an array of elective offerings, including chorus, band, handbells, yearbook, art, creative writing, and many others.

HCS School Temporary Closure Announcement

Governor Wolf Gov. Tom Wolf has announced that all K-12 schools in Pennsylvania will be closed for 10 business days due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Beginning Monday, March 16th, Harrisburg Christian School will be closed for two weeks and will make the transition to “distant learning”. It is important to note that Harrisburg Christian School does NOT have any confirmed cases of COVID-19.

During this closure, in order to keep students’ academic skills sharp and to eliminate disruption of the educational process, students will have assigned schoolwork. Early next week, students will be given 3 “vacation days” (Monday – Wednesday) while faculty and staff meet to implement our distant learning plan. More information will be sent via email early next week to thoroughly explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
