Our Apple Tree Fundraiser is under way and to make it easier on anyone wishing to support this project, we are listing all requested items here. If you are able to support our school and purchase any of these items, please know how much your generosity is appreciated. Due to COVID-19, school supplies may not be shared among students, which means each child must have their own set of supplies and each classroom must have their own set of playground toys. Some items are needed in every classroom (paper towels, disinfecting wipes, tissues, hand sanitizer, disinfecting spray, child-size masks). In the past, some supporters have found it easiest to order items online and have them sent directly to the school; if you would like to do that, please use our 212 State Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101 address and label Attn: Apple Tree. If you would like to drop off your donations, please email or call Joy to make arrangements, firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-514-6623. Thank you!

Harrisburg Catholic Elementary School takes a whole-child approach to elementary education. Teachers, administrators, counselors, and support staff work together to meet the intellectual, social, behavioral, and emotional needs of each and every child we serve. HCE uses the natural curiosity of children to teach Math, Reading, and critical thinking skills, following the curriculum of the Diocese of Harrisburg. We offer a gifted teaching staff, small class sizes, and personalized interest in each child. We are proud to be a Middle States Association accredited school.
Harrisburg Catholic enrolls Catholic and non-Catholic students from Pre-School through 8th Grade. Our students are encouraged to be independent contributing members of our school community. Our students represent Dauphin, Cumberland and Perry Counties.

Thanks for taking the time to visit our website. I hope you can find all the information that relates to enrollment, answer any questions you may have, or find out something about our school. Harrisburg Catholic Elementary was created out of Holy Family and Cathedral Consolidated Schools to bring the message of Jesus Christ to the children of our school on a daily basis through both word and action. Our students are challenged academically on a daily basis by a dedicated and highly qualified staff of individuals who work together to better each child that is enrolled in our school.
