DIOCESE OF HARRISBURG CATHOLIC SCHOOLS REOPENING PLAN 2021-2022
The Reopenning Plan for the 2021-22 school year has been added to e Envelope.
Saint Margaret Mary School is renowned in the Harrisburg area for its academic excellence. For the past 70+ years our goal has been to provide the best possible Catholic education for every student. This goal is maintained through a dedicated faculty and staff committed to Catholic education.
At the present time, St. Margaret Mary School maintains an enrollment of approximately 230 students. Our curriculum is based upon the graded courses of study developed by the Education Office of the Diocese of Harrisburg and approved by the State of Pennsylvania Department of Education. Saint Margaret Mary School includes a full-day Kindergarten through 8th grade. Our early childhood program includes two days a week morning and afternoon for 3 yr olds as well as a three day a week morning and afternoon Pre-K program. Extended care is available before and after school hours from 6:30 A.M. until 5:30 PM.
Consistent with our mission, our students learn through a well-rounded curriculum including daily religion classes, computer, art, music, physical education and foreign language (Spanish). Advanced Math and Language Arts classes are offered to the 7th and 8th grades.
At St. Margaret Mary School, the children receive an excellent academic training. Education research indicates that nationwide Catholic school students consistently outperform other schools on tests for math, reading and science. The Renaissance Star Testing ranking of St. Margaret Mary School confirms this research. While the graduates of St Margaret Mary School go on to excel in many area high schools the majority of our students go on to attend Bishop McDevitt High School ( http://www.bishopmcdevitt.org/).
Our hearts are filled with joy to have our Spartan family back together playing and learning. Here's to a wonderful 2020-2021 school year filled with possibilities. "BEE-lieve all things are possible with God."
