St. Margaret Mary School

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

Your Family Should Become a Part of Our Family


Saint Margaret Mary School has a strong tradition of bringing Catholic education to the Harrisburg area community. Our school and parish have been part of the surrounding community for over 70 years now. St. Margaret Mary School provides a Middle States Accredited cirriculumn that starts with full-day Kindergarten and continues through the 8th grade. We understand the value of going beyond the three ‘Rs’ of reading, writing, and arithmetic as is evidenced by our complete curriculum that includes STEM and foreign language education opportunities. We also understand that the school setting plays a significant role in educating the whole student which is why daily we stress four more ‘Rs’; right, wrong, responsibility, and of course, religion. We work every day to provide the type of educaiton your child deservers so that upon graduation our students go on to excel in top academic programs such as Bishop McDevitt High School.

For parents looking to put their child on the fast path, our early childhood program includes two days a week in the morning for children 3 years old. Our Pre-K program for 4 and 5 year olds includes an option for all day sessions on Monday, Wed, and Friday as well as half day session 5 days a week in the morning or afternoon. You can learn more about all of these excellent opportunities for your child by clicking on the link HERE.
