St. Margaret Mary School

Celebrating 70 Years Providing Excellence in Education in the Greater Harrisburg Area

* Important Messages from STMM *

Our Response to COVID-19

The events occurring now in our country and around the world are unprecedented in the 70+ year history of our school. Even though COVID-19 and Governor Wolf may have forced the closure of the school building for the remainder of the current school year, neither of them could stop the heart of St. Margaret Mary School, which is the faculty and staff and people of our St. Margaret Mary community. Education and learning have continued these many weeks thanks to the dedication of the people of our entire community. Parents, students, and faculty have worked together to keep St. Margaret Mary School open virtually, providing real opportunities to advance learning despite the enormous challenges. Our faculty has risen to the occasion and provided daily instruction throughout the closure.


THANK YOU to all involved in making distance learning a reality at STMM and a special thank you to our Faculty and Staff who have met this challenge head on. Because of their efforts, the benefits of a Catholic education continue to be a reality at St. Margaret Mary School.
While at this time we can't say with certainty what the 2020-2021 school year holds for us, what we can say is that St. Margaret Mary School will be working throughout the summer to get ready to be open and ready to provide the best faith-filled education that our children deserve in the safest manner possible.

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 330 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. 

Opportunities for Excellence

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 Iowa Test of Basic Skills 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 (
