Greetings from Harrisburg Christian School and West Shore Christian Academy (formerly Bible Baptist School)! For some it has been many years since you were on campus and for others graduation was just a few short months ago. As the new President of both schools, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself as a start to engaging with our alumni. To learn more about me please check out our leadership page at www.csagh.org.
Recently, we received a generous donation to help us build our alumni database system so that we can engage you in the life of the school as well as connect you with former classmates and teachers. I do hope you will complete our online alumni data form and update us with your contact information as I am sure some of our information is outdated. Click here to update your information!
Did you know in 2017 West Shore Christian Academy and Harrisburg Christian School joined together as a unified Christian school district? We now have two K-12 schools which serve students on both sides of the Susquehanna River. Our association is the Christian School Association of Greater Harrisburg (CSAGH). The ability to share resources has strengthened each school. It has also enabled our teachers to work in collaboration with others who share the same vision for Christian education in the Harrisburg region. We are truly stronger together!
You may recall the competition between HCS and WSCA/BBS on the sports fields, and that continues as fiercely as ever, but now CSAGH is winning over many families who are attracted by a much larger, stronger school system. This fall we now have over 770 students (HCS – 315, WSCA – 465) in the association, CSAGH’s largest enrollment ever.
The Mission Remains
Some things change, but our mission remains strong and true to founding principles. We continue to partner with Christian parents who want to see their children nurtured in faith through their school experience. Our promise to families is to deliver an excellent Christ-centered education which prepares students to be leaders who impact the world for Christ. No wonder more students than ever before are enrolling!
We are always looking for ways to improve the student and faculty experience at our schools and create an optimal space for student learning and success.
This summer at HCS we are renovating all classrooms in the middle and high school wing! This project includes new windows, air conditioning, ceilings, floor, and paint. We are also refacing the front of the building and paving the driveways and parking lot. It truly looks awesome!
At WSCA, which remains located at Baptist Bible Church (BBC) in Shiremanstown, the gym floor was resurfaced and is a bright spot for all students. We completed a turf upgrade on the soccer field and are working with BBC to renovate the gym lobby. There are always projects underway so check in or visit campus to see what is happening.
We are so thankful for the more than 2000 alumni from HCS and WSCA. Psalm 126:3 says “the Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with Joy.” You are part of our joy as the Lord is doing great things through you every day!
We would love for you to respond and update us on your journey so far! Please fill out the attached form so we can update our information.
