Special Health Announcement

Special Statement (March 13, 2020)

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has ordered the closing of all Pennsylvania Schools for a period of two weeks. Hershey Christian Academy will initiate a closure of schools for all students and staff effective the close of business, Friday, March 13, 2020 through Friday, March 27, 2020. Over the course of the next week, administration, faculty and staff will be refining our plan for delivering education remotely. Further communications will be forthcoming over the next week as this is an evolving situation. Please know we hold the safety of your family as well as our staff as a top priority. Please continue to pray with us for a quick end to this worldwide health issue.

 The Hershey Christian Academy is part of a network of schools locally striving for a healthy district. We also are part of the Pennsylvania Department of Education working to keep PA schools safe and sound. To that end, we look to the PA Department of Health, the PA Department of Education, Pennsylvania Emergency Management System, Derry Township School District, and our family physicians for our next steps.


Mission Statement

Hershey Christian Academy is committed to cultivating an educational environment where students are challenged to think independently and purposefully, where a grace-centered approach allows individual growth, self-confidence and worth in a safe classroom environment. We are convinced that an education that has Christ at the core will empower and equip students to be leaders in tomorrow’s world.

We are in the process of updating our website for upcoming re-enrollments and new enrollments. Check back frequently! Our Open House dates are posted below.

What people say about us...

I was the head of school at Hershey Christian School for 10 years and it was the best experience of my life. This is the same community that will bless your family and I know that they will provide a wonderful staff that will love your children and instill biblical values that will guide them throughout their lives. It is worth every penny you spend now that reaps eternal benefits for everyone in your family.

My thoughts and prayers are with the board and the leadership as HCA prepares to open their doors to the community.

Although this is a new school technically, it will have the same “feel” that we’ve had for the last 10+ years because it’s the same community with (anticipating) many of the same great teachers. Highly recommend it for a safe, nurturing, character building, academically excellent academic experience!

My role is first as a parent, and with that comes the responsibility that I have been given by GOD to nurture, teach, and raise the blessing he has provided us with.  There is no better place that I would rather put my child in than at Hershey Christian Academy.  I have seen first hand the experience that a educational environment with a Christ centered core has given my daughter and my family.  My daughter has shown confidence that she didn’t realize she had and for that, I am forever grateful.  If you want to have a wonderful experience while providing your child with a solid education, Hershey Christian Academy is for you.  I encourage you to contact HCA.

“The teachers at Hershey Christian Academy have facilitated life-changing growth in our daughter. Although she was already a confident student, the peaceful environment these teachers provide encouraged her to firmly plant her feet but spread her wings to develop into the unique creation God created her to be. We appreciate the smaller student-to-teacher ratio, as it allows for an individualized approach in education. If your child needs support, s/he will get it. If s/he needs to be challenged more, rest assured these teachers will identify and respond with creative planning.”
