INFORMATION ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

 

St. Mark’s Christian School’s mission is to provide a quality education that gives children the knowledge and wisdom to pursue future educational and vocational opportunities in God’s good creation.


The school will:

 

Provide an education based on Pennsylvania’s academic standards so that “no child will be left behind”. This includes learning opportunities and experiences that are based on the child’s individual needs, interests and abilities, building important foundations for future reading skills and other academic pursuits.

 

Provide appropriate experiences that will further the child’s social development and encourage the building of wholesome relationships.

 

Enrollment is open to any child, provided their needs may be met. The school does not discriminate with regard to sex, race, ethnicity, creed or political belief.

 

Our school provides the following special opportunities:

 

A September through May school year in spacious, bright child-friendly classrooms well staffed with educated teachers who take advantage of continuing education opportunities.

 

Availability of gym classes, in our multi-use facility.

 

Exciting programs, including guest presentations and up to date teaching resources using the latest methodologies. All classrooms feature plenty of fun and age-appropriate learning activities.

For more than twenty-five years, St. Mark has provided academic excellence for all of its children in a safe and nurturing Christian environment.


Timothy Ness, Pastor, notes: “I look forward every week to the opportunity to enjoy non-denominational chapel time with the children who attend our Christian School.”


Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”


Mark 10: 14
