Tuition at Harrisburg Christian School

If you are thinking about sending your child to Harrisburg Christian School, we are honored that you would consider entrusting us with your most valuable resource — your children. One of the first questions we usually hear from parents is, “How much is tuition?” We believe that a Christian education is an invaluable asset that will bring a lot of value to your child’s life, both now and in the future. Yet, we understand that for most families, choosing HCS will involve sacrifice.

While private school tuition in Harrisburg, PA, may not be your most inexpensive option, we strive to make a Christian education as affordable as possible. HCS will also match your family’s sacrifice with one of our own through fair and generous tuition assistance. The great news is that an HCS education is worth it as we partner with you to mold your child’s character and help them achieve academic success.

The Value Behind a Harrisburg Christian School Education

Our goal at Harrisburg Christian School is to see your child as the individual they are and draw out the gifts and talents that will set them up to impact the world for Christ.

Academics

It all starts in the classroom. We have a low student to faculty ratio so that your child is guaranteed one-on-one attention from our caring and talented educators.

Community

Our co-curricular activities, such as our athletic programs, the arts and a variety of clubs, allow your child to explore their interests and passions. These are also places where students can find belonging with those who share their same interests.

Faith

Jesus is at the core of everything we do. We see our calling as instructors, educators and disciple-makers. Through corporate prayer, weekly chapels and more, we strive to exemplify living a life for Christ. Along with a high-quality education, we hope your student graduates with an unapologetic faith that guides their life.

Financial Aid

We believe that no student should be prevented from pursuing a Christian education. We proudly open our doors to students from families at every economic level.

HSC is a member school of the Christian School Association of Greater Harrisburg (CSAGH). Our unified Christian school district awards about $1.0 million in financial aid annually.

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.
