As of January 1, 2017, Harrisburg Christian School (HCS) and West Shore Christian Academy (WSCA) united into a singular school system under the leadership of the Christian School Association of Greater Harrisburg (CSAGH). This is a historic development that will provide students with an even higher quality of Christian education, and further the level of Gospel influence here in the capital region as these schools partner to educate the next generation of Christian leaders.
